For more than seven decades, CoServ Electric has taken an active role in the North Texas communities we serve. In particular, we support and encourage the academic and community endeavors of our local students.
The W. Tip Hall, Jr. Scholarship is one way we recognize these future leaders. The scholarship is named after W. Tip Hall, Jr., a longtime educator, preacher and legislator who served on the CoServ Electric Board of Directors for 10 years. Mr. Hall’s love and commitment to education, and his work in developing the scholarship program for CoServ Electric, is the reason the scholarship bears his name. The purpose of this program is to encourage and support the academic endeavors of graduating high school seniors with an established connection to the electric cooperative, as they seek their education in an institute of higher learning in the state of Texas.
In 2014, CoServ Electric will distribute $15,000 in scholarships to five graduating seniors whose permanent residence is served by CoServ Electric and who plan to pursue their education at an institute of higher learning in the state of Texas. One scholarship will be awarded in each of the following amounts: $5,000, $4,000, $3,000, $2,000 and $1,000. All applications are due on January 31, 2014.
