Emery Telcom is giving a total of $11,000 in scholarship money to help local high school graduates pursue higher education.

The local telecommunications provider announced at various schools, the winners of the $1,000 tuition/books college scholarship awards. The recipients include:

Alexis Avery from Helper; Jana Burrows from Price; Janet Lowe from East Carbon; Savannah Black from Green River; Casey Murray from Castle Dale; Amber Brasher from Cleveland; Westin Kash Winn from Ferron; Doralie Wright from Orangeville; Mandi Weihing from Huntington; and Dereck Brotherson from Elmo.

Emery Telcom also presented Whitni Erickson, who represents the at-large community, a scholarship award

"We look forward to this event every year," said Greg Killpack, CEO and general manager. "It's an opportunity to recognize the youth for their hard work, and lend a helping hand to those who endeavor to earn a college degree."

Emery Telcom helped Jerica Jensen capture a $1,000 scholarship from the Foundation for Rural Education and Development (FRED). FRED is the philanthropic arm of OPASTCO, a national organization of which Emery Telcom is a member. The scholarship awards account for less than half of the money Emery Telcom donates every year to education initiatives.
