OPELIKA POWER SERVICES AND AMEA KICK OFF 2021 SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

Will you be graduating from an area high school in the spring of 2021? Do you receive your electricity from Opelika Power Services? Then if your answer to these questions is “yes,” you could be eligible to receive a scholarship from Opelika Power Services and the Alabama Municipal Electric Authority (AMEA).

OPS and AMEA will make available four scholarships to local high school students in 2021. Since 1992, AMEA has awarded over $2.5 million in scholarship monies to graduating high school seniors who receive their electric service from AMEA Members. To be eligible for an AMEA scholarship, a student’s parent and/or legal guardian must receive electric service from Opelika Power Services, and the student must attend a four-year college/university, community college, and/or vocational/trade school within the state of Alabama.

Applications are currently available from school counselors at Opelika High School, Trinity School and Lee Scott Academy, or you can go online to the OPS website at https://opelikapower.com/scholarship-application/. Application deadline is Monday, Feb. 8, 2021.

For more information on the program, contact your school counselor or Pamela Poole, AMEA Scholarship Program Coordinator, (334) 387-3504, (800) 239-2632, Ext. 1110, or pam@amea.com.

AMEA, a joint action agency formed in 1981 and located in Montgomery, is the wholesale power provider for 11 public power utilities in Alabama, which serve some 350,000 customers.
