2020 Scholarships of Excellence

Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative has awarded $150,000 in scholarships to 60 eligible high school seniors who graduated in 2020.

Half of the $2,500 scholarships went to students who are pursuing bachelor’s degrees, and the other half to students pursuing trade or technical certificates or associate degrees in a vocational field.

The scholarships were awarded in April.

One recipient unexpectedly passed away May 30. Caitlyn Harman wanted to be a nurse and was planning to study at Texas A&M University. A top 10 graduate at Bastrop High School this year, the 17-year-old was the recipient of a Trade and Technical Scholarship from Bluebonnet. Now, her brother Casey Harman, a 2018 Bastrop High School graduate planning to attend Texas A&M this fall, will receive the scholarship. He is transferring from Blinn College in Brenham. Casey plans to study turfgrass science and hopes to one day own a commercial turfgrass business.
In the past five years, Bluebonnet has given out $679,500 in scholarships to students from across the cooperative’s service area.
