30 Jun Citizens Telephone Scholarship Setup to Support Students in Coverage Areas
Created in November of 2015, the Citizens Telephone Scholarship has become one of the largest scholarship awards offered through the Huntington County Community Foundation (HCCF). Each year two graduating high school seniors are awarded $5,000 each to go towards their college tuition and required fees. Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 2.0 (“C” average), answer two essay questions regarding their financial need and desire to further their education, and reside in one of the following zip codes: 46792 (Warren, IN), 46781 (Poneto, IN), 46766 (Liberty Center, IN), or 46714 (Bluffton, IN).
Currently, Citizens Telephone Corporation serves as an advisory member of the scholarship committee, reading through each application and making recommendations to HCCF regarding the scholarship recipients. Citizens Telephone Corporation has also created a scholarship adviser succession plan to keep a representative of the corporation involved in the extended future.
Since 1904, Citizens Telephone has been serving the Warren area with a focus on excellent customer service. In only two years, the Citizens Telephone Scholarship has awarded 4 students $20,000 in scholarships. We congratulate Garret Smith and Brooke Trice for being 2017 Citizens Telephone Scholars!
