The six winners can use their scholarship at any accredited university, college, or junior college of their choice.

The money used for these scholarships is from unclaimed deposits or refunds from our members. The law allows Lamar Electric to use a portion of these funds for scholarships, otherwise the money is turned over to the state. Each member can still file a claim with the state of Texas for unclaimed checks.

We are proud that Lamar Electric can help these students achieve their educational goals and we encourage every co-op member to take this opportunity to submit the name of your son or daughter next year.
