Danielle Moss of Quincy Senior High School is one of ten winners of this year’s Illinois Electric Cooperatives (IEC) Memorial Scholarship. She is the daughter of Cynthia Moss of Quincy.
Danielle competed for the scholarship with 275 other students from across the state. The $2,000 awards are given each year to nine sons or daughters of electric co-op members, employees or directors. (A tenth scholarship reserved for a student interested in lineman’s college will be announced at a later date.) Manager of Communications Laura Dotson presented Danielle with a plaque recognizing her achievement during the Quincy Senior High School awards ceremony.
Candidates were judged on grade-point average, college entrance exam scores, work and volunteer experience, school and civic activities and a short essay demonstrating their knowledge of energy cooperatives.
Jim Thompson, Adams Electric Cooperative General Manager said, “The employees and board members of Adams Electric Cooperative have always been involved in our local schools and communities. We live here too and, like our members, have a vested interest in the future of our children. This scholarship is just one small way we can help make a difference.”
