For more than 80 years, South Alabama Electric Cooperative has prided itself on giving back to the community. One of the biggest ways this is accomplished is by awarding scholarships to deserving high school seniors.

This year was no different, as SAEC awarded 18 scholarships of $1,000 through the Electric Cooperative Foundation. The scholarships are awarded to students who are planning to attend an accredited four-year college, junior college, technical school or vocational school.

“These students are the future of our area and our cooperative,” says SAEC General Manager David Bailey. “South Alabama Electric is proud to help them get a head start on the next chapter of their life.”

SAEC has numerous programs designed to help the community grow and thrive. For more information on these programs, and how to apply for scholarships next year, visit
