Co-Mo Connect Lineman Scholarship
THE CO-MO LINEMAN SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION PERIOD IS NOW OPEN!
The Co-Mo Connect Lineman Scholarship is an opportunity for local high school seniors who might be interested in attending electric line school through the Electrical Distribution Systems (EDS) program at State Tech in Linn, MO, or Ozarks Technical in Lebanon, MO. This scholarship is only available to students interested in the EDS program.
Eligible students must live within Co-Mo’s service territory to be considered, attend OTC or State Technical College, and eventually be accepted into the EDS program. Even if the student resides in a town where Co-Mo is not their electric service provider, they are still eligible to apply. For example, Co-Mo Connect does not electrically serve the town of Versailles, but a student living in the city limits would still be eligible for the scholarship because Co-Mo provides electric service around the entire town. Here is a link to our service map to help visualize our service territory/area boundaries.
The application period for this scholarship is NOW OPEN. Please use the links below to fill out the appropriate paperwork and return it to Co-Mo before April 15, 2023.
2021 Scholarship Winner Announcement
Co-Mo Connect, Powered by Co-Mo Electric Cooperative, recently awarded its inaugural Mark Imhoff Memorial Lineman Scholarship to Marcus Imhoff of California.
Marcus is a graduate of California High School and will be attending Ozarks Technical Community College in Lebanon this fall. He also has plans to join the Electrical Distribution System (EDS) program to become an electric lineman.
Imhoff is the nephew of Mark Imhoff, the scholarship's namesake and a former line foreman at Co-Mo until his passing on April 19, 2001.
"It's especially humbling to give Marcus this scholarship on the 20th anniversary of Mark's passing," says Brian Rasa, an Area Lineman at Co-Mo and coordinator of the Mark Imhoff Memorial Lineman Scholarship Golf Tournament. "Marcus is an amazing young man, and we look forward to seeing what he does in the future."
The Second Annual Mark Imhoff Memorial Lineman Scholarship Golf Tournament will be taking place late this summer, on August 21, 2021. The event will be at Rolling Hills Country Club in Versailles, MO. Along with the golf tournament, the entry fee includes food and the chance to win prizes.
"We are honored to host the tournament for the second consecutive year," said Rasa. "It's a great tradition and a fantastic way to memorialize Mark. Co-Mo is proud to help raise money for lineman education, and each year, we look forward to seeing everyone get together to play golf, share a meal and have a good time in his memory."
