For 28 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 195 students more than $252,500 in scholarships. The results of the scholarship drawing were announced Friday, March 26, during a live feed video on the co-op’s Facebook page.
