Seminole Awards College Scholarships

This summer, Seminole presented college scholarships to students Josie Denham and Edgardo Gonzalez.

“We are proud and excited to provide these scholarship awards to such hardworking, deserving students,” said Lisa Johnson, Seminole’s CEO and General Manager. “The 2017 scholarship recipients are not only a part of the Seminole family, but they are both very active in their communities.”

Both students are relatives of Seminole employees at the Seminole Generating Station in Palatka, Florida and will be able to use the scholarship for school related expenses such as tuition, books, and fees.

Josie Denham, daughter of Tim Denham, is a 2017 graduate of Palatka High School, where she maintained a 3.5 GPA, all while being a vital part of the varsity softball team and an active member of FFA, raising and showing her cattle at the Putnam County Fair. Josie has been recognized for her leadership skills and the commitment that she shows in all that she does.

Edgardo Gonzalez, son of Ed Gonzalez, graduated from Matanzas High School in Palm Coast. “I want to thank Seminole for the opportunity they have provided me through this scholarship award,” says Edgardo. Edgardo has been accepted to the University of Central Florida as a “Top 10 Knight” based on his outstanding academic achievement in high school. Edgardo was very active in academic and community service minded clubs, including the Interact Club, the Leo’s Club, and the DECA Club. Additionally, he served as president of Club Hispanico and secretary of the National Honor Society.
