|City, Entergy award scholarships locally|
Twelve local high school seniors were honored Thursday at the sixth annual Entergy-city of Monroe community service scholarship program, which was held at the Monroe Civic Center.
More than 70 students have received over $35,000 through the scholarship, which was founded by Mayor Jamie Mayo and sponsored by Entergy.
Each scholarship recipient is required to live within Monroe city limits, maintain a 3.0 GPA and score a minimum of 17 on the ACT test. A recipient also must perform acts of community service, write an essay and attend a Louisiana college or university.
Eligible high schools are allowed to pick up to two eligible students (one male and one female) to receive the $500 scholarship.
"Our class of 2008 includes an impressive group of students," Mayo said. "These students have excelled in the classroom and in the field of community service.
"Their accomplishments give us reason to be Monroe proud," Mayo continued. "We require that these students attend Louisiana colleges and universities because we want to increase the chances of them bringing their talents back home to help lead our city, parish, region and state into the future."
Entergy's Kenny Solley added, "Entergy is, once again, proud to partner with Mayor Mayo and the City of Monroe to provide this opportunity for local students to further their education while encouraging them to be active within the community. The academic and community performance of these students show us the power of people, even young people, can help us reach great heights. We must encourage students of all ages to be leaders and independent thinkers who can make a difference in our community."
The 2008 Entergy-city of Monroe community service scholarship recipients were: Carroll High School's Stephany Long and Louis Harris, Neville High School's Courtney Porter and JeMarcus Welch, Wossman High School's Erika Pleasant and Evan Johnson, Saint Frederick High School's Audrey Highfill and Joe Dixon III, Ouachita Christian's Melinda Humble and Andrew Harrison and River Oaks' Kathryn Saye and Hunter Chapman.
