Media Contact: Anna Wright CHATOM-Julia Schell of Washington County High School is the 2008 recipient of Clarke-Washington Electric Membership Cooperative’s annual scholarship. The $1,000 scholarship will aid Julia as she attends Auburn University this fall as a freshman in the College of Education.
Julia has been very involved in her school, church and the Chatom community.

She has also been involved with the marching and concert band.
Proof of being an A-Honor Roll student, Julia was selected as salutatorian of her graduating class and has a 4.0 GPA. Julia knows grades are important but still finds the time to volunteer with the Washington County Public Library, the Washington County Nursing Home and visits with the sick and homebound citizens in her community. Julia also volunteered at Chatom Elementary School, tutors and initiated a mentor partnership between the National Honor Society and the elementary school.
Serving as a county representative Julia was chosen as Washington County’s 2008 Junior Miss and is involved with the Washington County Camellia Maids. She also enjoys being a participant in the Chatom Youth Theatre Group.

Julia is the daughter of Wiley and Amanda Schell of Chatom.
The Electric Cooperative Foundation, Inc. was created by the electric cooperatives of Alabama in 1997. Their mission is to give back to the communities they serve by providing scholarships for qualifying high school seniors. The sole decision as to who receives the scholarship is determined by the Board of Directors of the Foundation.
This scholarship committee looks for well-rounded students in each rural electric cooperative. One scholarship is awarded annually to students who show leadership, hard work ethics, and a sense of pride for their community and responsibility as citizens. More than 50 applications were received from Clarke-Washington EMC’s service area this year.
Clarke-Washington EMC congratulates Julia on graduating from Washington County High School and wishes her the best as she begins her collegiate career at Auburn University.
