Thurs., June 25, 7 a.m. - Noon Kimball Legion Club Meeker Cooperative Electric Trust Board grants scholarships to area students The Meeker Cooperative Elec- tric Trust Board awarded scholar- ships to seven member students from high schools in Meeker Coop- erative's service area that plan to pursue higher education. These $500 scholarships are funded through Meeker Cooperative's Operation Round Up (OPRU) program. The OPRU program allows members of the Coopera- tive to "round up" their electric bill to the nearest dollar and donate those coins to the fund. Meeker Co-op employees also participate, rounding "down" the amount of their paychecks to the nearest dol- lar. "Through the strong support of our members and employees, the grams and scholarships awarded from this program have been a huge benefit to our local commu- nity," said Kristin Dolan, Meeker Cooperative's financial manager and administrator of the OPRU program. "What a wonderful way to make such a large difference with the small amount each per- son donates." This year's $500 scholarship recipients are: Dassel-Cokato H.S. - Carmen Dischinger Litchfield Senior H.S. - Jordan Negaard Paynesville H.S. - Samuel Rit- tenhouse ACGC Senior H.S. - Kurtis Huis- man Eden Valley-Watkins H.S. - Jill Yanish Kimball Area H.S. - Robert Arens Hutchinson H.S. - James Leon- ard This year marks the 10th anni- versary of Meeker Co-op's Opera- tion Round Up program. Besides scholarships, OPRU also distrib- utes grants to community non- profit and charitable organizations. An independent Meeker Cooper- ative Electric Trust Board, which consists of members of the Cooper- ative, chooses the grant recipients from the applications received. High schools award scholarships based on established guidelines. Since 1999, a total of $329,427 has been distributed to students and organizations in Meeker Co-op's six-county service area. rmyard Vacationers, Groups, Clubs, Schools, Special Events, Birthday Parties, Coi More... , MAZE- 19,000 sq. ft. of fun with 5 towers.
