Wabash President and CEO, Mike Boley, presents Karlee Huber the $2,500 FRS Scholarship Award.

Celina, Ohio – Wabash Mutual Telephone Company recently presented Celina High School graduate Karlee Huber with a $2,500 Foundation for Rural Services (FRS) Scholarship.

The FRS College Scholarship Program awards one-time scholarships to students
from rural America for their first year of college, university or vocational-technical school. Each student is sponsored by an NTCA member company. This national scholarship program empowers rural youth by giving them opportunities for higher education. Their hope is that these students return to rural America to enhance and enrich their rural community with education and experience. Huber is one of 47 awardees of this scholarship, chosen from more than 1,500 applications. Wabash is proud to have sponsored Huber, the daughter of Carl and Michele Huber.

FRS Executive Director Jessica Golden

“FRS is extremely proud of our college scholarship program and the people who make it possible: the astounding students who apply and the supportive companies that sponsor them. Our 47 scholarship winners have proven their academic abilities – often despite challenging personal circumstances – and have also showcased a remarkable love and appreciation for their communities. We wish all awardees the best in their future endeavors and hope they feel a great sense of support and community pride.”

Wabash wishes Karlee the best as she attends Liberty University, majoring in Spanish and Business Administration this fall.
