Scholarship

The Snapping Shoals EMC Scholarships were created in 1993 to recognize the achievements of outstanding high school students throughout our area. In 2004, we renamed them the Snapping Shoals EMC J.E. Robinson Memorial Scholarships in memory of our former manager, president and CEO J.E. "Ed" Robinson, who was at the helm of Snapping Shoals from 1953 to 1995.

Academic ability, financial need and other factors, such as school and community activities, are considered in the selection of the scholarship recipients. The Snapping Shoals EMC J.E. Robinson Memorial Scholarships are currently worth $2,000 each, and we typically award a total of 14 each spring.

Any high school senior whose primary residence is served by Snapping Shoals EMC, or whose high school is served by SSEMC, may apply. The 2018 J.E. Robinson Memorial Scholarship winners are: • District 1 (Newton, Walton, Morgan and Jasper counties) – Stephen Aguare, Ashley Cronan, Seah Odum, Fatima Tinoco • District 2 (Rockdale County) – Tawanna Brown, Ezekiel Gunnison, Najifa Hossain, Bryonna Peeples • District 3 (DeKalb County) – Carolyn Muhammad, Charity Stanton • District 4 (Henry and Butts counties) – Tatyana Fraley, Kelsea Jackson, Hannah Lamp, Isabel Rutledge

The Snapping Shoals EMC All-Around Student Scholarships were created in 2007 to recognize the amazing high school students throughout our area. These students are able to balance involvement in extracurricular activities while maintaining an excellent academic record.

Involvement in school and community activities is the primary consideration for the All-Around Student Scholarship. Academic ability and financial need are also factors in the selection of the scholarship recipients. The Snapping Shoals EMC All-Around Student Scholarships are currently worth $2,000 each, and we typically award a total of 6 each spring. Any high school senior whose primary residence is served by Snapping Shoals EMC, or whose high school is served by SSEMC, may apply.
