WALESKA — Amicalola Electric Membership Corp. recently donated $25,000 to Reinhardt University for scholarships to students whose households are served by Amicalola EMC.

The Amicalola EMC Scholars Fund will be distributed in $1,000 increments to students who are attending Reinhardt and need financial assistance with their education.

“This generous gift from Amicalola EMC will enable us to grant awards to students who need help to attend Reinhardt,” said JoEllen Wilson, vice president for the office of advancement. “We are very grateful this business is willing to reach and invest in the community.”

The funds for scholarships are awarded from Amicalola EMC’s unclaimed property account established by state law that allows an electric membership corporation to donate capital credits presumed abandoned if the funds are used for education purposes in the EMC’s service area.
