West Carolina Tel (WCTEL) recently awarded the recipients of the WCTEL & Foundation for Rural Service (FRS) 2019 college scholarships, totaling $11,000 in funds to help local youth pursue further learning. All scholarship applications are mailed to FRS and independently judged in Washington, DC, by a panel of judges selected by FRS.

The WCTEL scholarship for $8000, issued annually for four years in the amount of $2000 per year was awarded to Will Smith from Abbeville High School. Will plans to attend Anderson University in the fall to pursue a degree in Economics. Will also received the $500 Rodger Cox scholarship from FRS.

The FRS 25th anniversary scholarship, valued at $2500, was awarded to Jake McAllister from Greenwood Christian School. Jake plans to attend the Clemson University Bridge Program to pursue a degree in Agricultural Mechanization and Business.

“The board and employees of West Carolina Tel are delighted to help area youth pursue their college dreams,” said Jeff Wilson, CEO of West Carolina Tel. “We hope that these students flourish and one day return to our area to raise their families and pursue their career dreams. Our area offers a wealth of opportunities and we welcome these students with open arms.
