Snead State Community College recently presented one-year full tuition scholarships to the winners of the first round of the Alabama Youth Tour Competition, sponsored by Marshall-DeKalb Electric Cooperative.
The competition requires students to submit an essay and participate in an interview process prior to selection for the scholarship. All of the participants were eligible to be included in an Alabama Youth Tour trip to Montgomery, which took place March 15-17.
Students participating in the competition included Juleydi Franco Ramos of Crossville, Nicole Abercrombie and Katlyn Amanda Brothers, both of Douglas, Emma Cook and Elijah Slaton, both of Geraldine.
Snead State President Dr. Joe Whitmore presented the scholarships to the participants, who will be able to use the scholarships once they’ve graduated high school. Students must be juniors in high school to participate in the program. The winners will travel with winners from other cooperative areas in the state to Washington, D.C.
