High School Senior Scholarships
Each year, Bluestem awards ten scholarships to high school seniors whose parents/guardians are members of Bluestem Electric Cooperative. In 2017 the scholarship amounts were raised to six $750 scholarships and four $500 scholarships. The scholarships are awarded to the top 10 candidates that complete a two-stage process. The first stage includes an application and test that must be completed and returned to Bluestem in December. In the second stage, a panel of judges interview the finalists in the following spring.
The 2017 scholarship recipients are Kayley Brethour, Home Schooled; Ryanne Ewell, Blue Valley High School; Cale Hinrichsen, Rock Creek Jr./Sr. High School; Emma Kellogg, Manhattan High School; John Kennedy, Jackson Heights High School; Taylor Mall, Clay Center Community High School; Eli Miller, Rock Creek Jr./Sr. High School; Michaela Musselman, Clay Center Community High School; Rachael Peterson, Riley County High School; and Reece Warren, Wamego High School. Congratulations!
