Published 6:37 pm Thursday, September 30, 2010

Lake Mitchell Home Owners and Boat Owners Association (HOBO) members recently announced they will be awarding their third annual scholarship to a student in Chilton or Coosa County in the spring of 2011.

To apply, a student must be a senior in good standing with at least a “B” average and planning to attend an Alabama college in the fall of 2011.

The student must submit an application form and an essay and participate in one or more Lake Mitchell clean-ups.

Finalists will be interviewed by members of HOBO’s Scholarship Committee.

For the past two years, with help and support through donations and Lake Mitchell calendar sales, Lake Mitchell HOBO has given two students scholarships in the amount of $2,500 each.

If you are a student or know of a student who is interested in applying, contact Rebecca Beaty at rebecca.beaty@gmail.com, or call (205) 305-7597 for further information.
