Tri-County Electric awards $16,950 in scholarships

Posted in Rushford Business Announcements

Rushford, MN— Tri-County Electric Cooperative (TEC) recently awarded $16,950 in scholarship to 47 local high school students. Since 1991 the cooperative has given $211,187 to area high school graduates.

The money for the scholarships is funded through unclaimed capital credits. The cooperative is a non-profit organization where margins remaining after the cost of providing electric service are returned to members as capital credits. TEC attempts to contact owners of the capital credits for seven years before the capital credits are considered unclaimed.

Scholarship recipients are chosen by their high school to receive TEC’s scholarships. TEC issues the unclaimed capital credits to 17 school districts within its service territory. The amount of unclaimed capital credits issued to each school is determined by the number of TEC members residing in the school’s district.

Recipients of this year’s TEC scholarships are:

•Caledonia High School: Kennan Bruening, Ryan Frank, Troy King, Taylor Schulte and Jessica Trudo.

•Chosen Valley High School: Lydia Becker and Erin Kammer.

•Cotter High School: Patrick Cochran.
