Green Hills employees are committed to delivering the best in terms of customer service, technology and community involvement. We not only provide technical expertise and support to our business and residential customers, but we are also active members of our local communities.
We put our communities first by supporting local community events, rural youth opportunities and economic development grants.
Every summer, hundreds of rural students from all over the United States are chosen to visit our nation’s capital and learn about rural telecommunications. Green Hills proudly sponsors one local student each year by paying for their airfare, lodging, registration fees and spending money for this unique opportunity (valued at $1,600). Learn more by visiting the Foundation for Rural Services website.
The application for the 2017 scholarship is closed. Please check back January 2018.
Each year, high school seniors whose parent or legal guardians are telephone, Internet, or Skitter TV customers of Green Hills Communications have the opportunity to win up to $2,500 in scholarships. Scholarship applications from all over the United States are submitted to FRS for judging. If an entry is chosen from Green Hills, the scholarship is sponsored in part by Green Hills Communications ($500) and FRS (up to $2000). If an entry from our area is not chosen, Green Hills chooses a winner from our area applicants and awards the winner with a $500 college scholarship. Preparing for next year? Take a look at last year’s application on the FRS website.
