CRC to Award $6,000 in Scholarships to Area Students
Austin, Minnesota - Cooperative Response Center, Inc. (CRC) is pleased to announce its scholarship program for the 2012-2013 school year, awarding up to $6,000 to students attending high schools in the communities in which it works.
CRC will award up to six $1,000 scholarships to seniors attending high schools, both public and private, in the following communities: Austin, Minn., Dunlap, Tenn., and Abilene, Texas. High school senior sons and daughters of regular full- and part-time CRC employees are also eligible.
CRC’s Corporate Giving/Community Involvement Program continues to have a major focus on education, youth development, culture and arts, health, human services, and animal welfare. This is CRC’s fourth year funding scholarship programs for area students. Last year’s scholarship recipients include Zach Fadness, Michael Lindahl, and Spencer Otteson from the Austin area and Madison Harmon and Tao Johnson from the Dunlap area. This is the first year students in Abilene, Texas, will be eligible to participate in CRC’s scholarship program. CRC opened a regional office in Abilene in May 2011.
“CRC is proud to be able to assist local students with continuing their education at the collegiate level,” said Chris Holt, CRC’s President and CEO. “By helping these individuals achieve their dreams, our hope is that the scholarship recipients pay it forward by contributing their gifts and talents to the community, both professionally and personally, for many years to come.”
The deadline to apply for one of CRC’s $1,000 scholarships is Wednesday, February 29, 2012. For more information or for a CRC scholarship application, contact Julie Schramek, Executive Assistant/Corporate Communications Manager, at 507.437.2304 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
