STATESVILLE — EnergyUnited announced Tuesday the second-year renewal of its scholarship program, Empowering the Future.

The electric cooperative is again offering two $5,000 scholarships to qualified students who are currently enrolled in their senior year of high school and who plan to attend a college, university or technical school.

The scholarships are designed to recognize students who have exemplified academic success as well as demonstrated a commitment to bettering their community.

To be eligible for the scholarship, students must live in a residence served by EnergyUnited or attend a school that is served by EnergyUnited. Applicants should be planning to attend an accredited college, university or technical school.
