MEDORA, Ind.—Feb. 25, 2013— Students must apply by March 29 for a scholarship designed to recognize local high school seniors committed to the environment.
Since 2009, Rumpke has selected one Jackson County student each year for the Rumpke Medora Landfill Scholarship. In addition to demonstrating environmental stewardship, applicants must be a resident of Jackson County, graduating high school this spring, and planning to earn a two or four-year degree at an accredited institution.
Past recipients from Crothersville, Trinity Lutheran and Seymour high schools have been leaders in 4-H, FFA and mentored younger students about the importance of recycling.
“The young people recognized through our scholarship program are making a difference in our community,” said Rumpke Regional Vice President Mike Nelson. “We are glad to recognize these students as they are an inspiration to our clean and green mission.”
Applications are available by contacting Rumpke Education Specialist Anne Gray at firstname.lastname@example.org or (800) 582-3107 ext. 7164.
Owned and operated by Rumpke since 1983, the Medora Landfill accepts municipal solid waste and construction demolition debris. The Landfill earned an environmental stewardship award in 2011.
