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. This scholarship is sponsored in part by Green Hills Communications and the Foundation for Rural Service (FRS). If an entry from our area is not chosen for the $2,500 FRS scholarship, then Green Hills performs their own judging and chooses a student for a $500 college scholarship

Information and applications on the scholarship are sent to area high schools each December and have a deadline around mid-February (Specific dates are announced each year.). Parents, legal guardians, and students are more than welcome to contact our office at 660-644-5411 and speak to Sherryl Garcia for an application or additional information.

Emma Thoeni, daughter of Charles and Kelli Thoeni of Stet, MO, is this year’s $500 college scholarship recipient. Green Hill’s Board President, David Misel, presented Emma with the $500 check and wished her well in her future endeavors. Emma plans on attending Central Methodist University where she will major in Occupational Therapy. Green Hills would also like to wish Emma a bright and prosperous future.
