We reached out to the winner's of the 2013 "BE More" Scholarship to see how it has helped them this past school year:
This scholarship really allowed me the opportunity to pay for books and tuition while providing me with some financial relief. Thanks to Bounce Energy, my family and I were burdened less with the ability to pay for my college education. In addition, receiving this scholarship allowed my diabetic father, who is on dialysis, to not worry about breaking his budget or using his limited resources to finance my education. My family has done a lot for me over the years, so I'm glad that I can help take care of them now.- Lucinda Y.
The Bounce Energy "Be More" scholarship has been such a blessing to me. It has lightened the financial burden of college considerably and has allowed me to focus on enjoying my time in college instead of having to devote all my time to work and worrying about how to afford college. The scholarship has definitely allowed me to continue being "more than a student" by giving me the time to get involved in clubs and activities on campus and continue running Tying Up Cancer. I will forever be appreciative of Bounce Energy's efforts to be more than an electricity company, giving back to the communities in which they serve!- Molly B.
I am so appreciative that I was awarded a Bounce Energy scholarship in 2013. I am majoring in engineering at Virginia Tech and these funds have allowed me to not only focus more on my studies, but also to increase my outreach to the community. I have continued to be involved in FIRST robotics and signed up to mentor the local team in VA as well as my hometown high school's team online and during my breaks.- Thomas F.
