Commission doles out three $500 scholarships
May 12, 2013 - By Eric Blom, Staff Writer
Three Fremont County high school seniors will be receiving a little help in paying for college from their local government.
On Tuesday, commissioners decided to give a scholarship of $500 per semester to Cody Flynn of Dubois, Nateal Hemingway of Lander, and Teal Stoll of Pavillion.
Flynn attends Dubois High School and plans to study diesel mechanics at Casper College, according to his scholarship application.
Hemingway attends Lander Valley High School and plans to study nursing at the University of Wyoming.
Stoll is homeschooled and will receive her high school diploma through the Christian Liberty Academy. She plans to attend Gillete College to study accounting and business.
The three will receive the scholarship for their freshman year. They will have to reapply in later years, and the commission will select only one student to receive a renewed scholarship.
UW administers the scholarship funds, and the county commission chooses the recipients. Applicants must use the money to attend a junior college or public university in Wyoming.
Aspen Hemingway, Ashley Lynott and Joseph Roseno will be the first, second and third alternates, respectively.
An award will go to an alternate if one of the recipients decides not to go to college next year, if they go to a school that does not qualify for the funds or if other scholarships fully fund their education.
