Thirty-three high school students awarded $5,000 scholarship for first year of college


This fall, 33 high school graduates will attend college or vocational-technical schools with some help from the Entergy Community Power Scholarship.

The college-bound children and dependents of Entergy employees in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas received $5,000 each in recognition of their community service, academics achievements, leadership and work experience. Since 2003, company shareholders have contributed more than $3.2 million to 648 recipients for the one-time scholarship.

"Investing in the future success of our communities and the young people in it is at the heart of what we do at Entergy, and the success of our employees and their families is also equally important," said Patty Riddlebarger, vice president of corporate social responsibility. “Some of us have seen these students grow into the young leaders that they are today, and with their plans to major in engineering, nursing, biology and more, this scholarship is a contribution to their future success. We wish them well on their first year of higher education.”
