Adams Electric Cooperative is proud to announce that Siera Houston of Brown County High School is one of fourteen winners of this year’s Thomas H. Moore Illinois Electric Cooperatives (IEC) Memorial Scholarship. She is the daughter of Brian and Julie Houston of Mt. Sterling, Illinois. Siera competed for the scholarship with 222 other students from across the state. The $2,000 awards are given each year to thirteen sons or daughters of electric co-op members, employees or directors. A fourteenth scholarship is reserved for a student interested in lineworker’s college and will be announced at a later date. Siera will be recognized during the Association of Illinois Electric Cooperatives’ annual meeting on July 28, 2022, in Springfield.
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 electric cooperatives.
Come this fall, Siera will attend John Wood Community College to study health sciences. Adams Electric Cooperative is honored to have a scholarship recipient and is excited to see how she will represent the community.
