Woodard is vice president of her class, president of the National Honor Society, and a member of Mu Alpha Theta, Senior Beta Club, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Student Government Association, Key Club, and Experiencing Community by Helping Others. She plays softball, was captain of the basketball team, and co-captain of her cheerleading team. She is also a Camellia Girl for the Greenville Area Chamber of Commerce. She plans to attend Auburn University, where she will major in biomedical studies.

“Pioneer Electric invests in young people and their pursuit of higher education,” said Christi Scruggs, Pioneer Electric’s director of communications. “Commitment to local communities is one of our founding principles, and our scholarship program is one of the ways we support this mission. We have exceptional students in our service area and we are honored to help them achieve their academic goals. »

The Electric Cooperative Foundation was created by rural electric cooperatives throughout Alabama to give back to communities in the form of scholarships for qualified high school students. This year, 21 applications from Pioneer Electric students were evaluated by an independent selection committee of the Electric Cooperative Foundation. Since its founding, the Foundation has awarded more than $500,000 in scholarships.
