(Franklin, GA) — Carroll Electric Membership Cooperative has selected three Heard County High School students as 2020 recipients of the Lineman School Scholarships.

Class of 2020 seniors Wyn Denney, Jake Harrod, and Caden Raines were awarded the scholarships to attend a lineman school in Georgia.

The winners were required to submit an essay explaining why they want to be lineman, submit two letters of recommendation and complete an interview with the scholarship selection team.

The scholarships cover tuition, textbooks and other related institutional fees and are available up to 24 months after award date.

In addition to the scholarship, the award winners are paired with a lineman mentor from Carroll EMC.

Linework is more than just a job. It is a way life, and Jake Harrod understands that being a safe and dedicated lineman yields admirable values. Jake will attend  North Georgia Technical College (NGTC) in Clarkesville, GA.

“This scholarship is a tremendous first step toward a career that will define my future,” explained Harrod. “A future that I feel will mold me into the man that I strive to be: hard working, productive and able to provide for a family.”

Caden Raines will also attend NGTC.

“Receiving this scholarship means I will have the opportunity to attend North Georgia Technical College and pursue a career of becoming a lineman,” stated Raines.

Wyn Denney will attend the Southeast Lineman Training Center in Trenton, GA.

“Being awarded this scholarship is truly an honor. I am hopeful it will give me the opportunity for a lifelong career and to help many people along the way,” said Denney.
