DeRidder— For 25 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 148 students more than $205,000 in scholarships. The results of the scholarship drawing were announced Saturday, March 24, during BECi’s annual meeting at the cooperative’s headquarters in DeRidder.
The following students were chosen for the 2018- 2019 academic school-year:
Cody Seal, graduating senior at Singer High School
Richey Drayden, graduating senior at Sam Houston High School
Bailey Glaze, Jr, graduating senior at Leesville High School
Blake Davenport, graduating senior at South Beauregard High School
