The Snapping Shoals EMC Scholarships were created in 1993 to recognize the achievements of outstanding highschool seniors throughout our area. In 2004, we renamed them the Snapping Shoals EMC J.E. Reobinson 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.
