For 26 years, Beauregard Electric Cooperative Inc. (BECi), has randomly selected students within its service area to receive a scholarship to attend a Louisiana University. These funds were made possible through legislative changes in 1993 to allow unclaimed funding to stay in local communities assisting families to further their education.
Since its inception, BECi has awarded 163 students more than $215,750 in scholarships. The results of the scholarship drawing were announced Saturday, Mar. 23, during BECi’s annual meeting at the cooperative’s headquarters in DeRidder.
The following students were among those chosen for the 2019-2020 academic school-year:
- Hallie Guidry, graduating senior at South Beauregard High School.
- Carlie Pierce, graduating senior at Singer High School.
- Andrea Stebbins, graduating senior at South Beauregard High School.
