TAYLORVILLE — Seventeen senior students from Taylorville High School are depending on the votes of local residents to help determine the two (2) winners of $1000 awards in TCCU’s annual scholarship program.
The financial awards are to be used toward the students’ continuing education, whether it be at a trade school, community college or a 4-year university program.
According to TCCU President, Will Perkins, the winners of the $1000 awards will be determined by the number of votes cast in participating local businesses. For every
$10 a person spends in a business, they can cast one (1) vote for a registered student. There is no limit to how many stores shoppers can patronize, or how many times.
“Voting continues through February 28, so people still have plenty of time – and plenty of stores – to shop,” Perkins points out. “We encourage everyone to ‘think global, shop local,’ and support our communities’ small businessowners.”
“Taylorville High School students
participating in the 2021- 22 scholarship program are:
Summer Brandis, Kennedie Cearlock, Olivia
Enlow, Hunter Gerlick, Abigail Heberling, Jayden Hopkins, Ryan Johnson, Alexis Kent, Rebekah Krah, Jillian Lowry, Luke Markwell, Sallie “Izzy” Miller, Emma Pennock, Lizzie Schafer, Daniel Sloan, Averi Stephens and Tucker Tippit.
The complete list of participating businesses in Taylorville, as well as those in Hillsboro, Litchfield and Pana, is on TCCU’s web site (www. TCCU.org). Businesses also are displaying large posters featuring the registered students’ photos in their front
windows or inside.
