Six San Juan County high-school students [see photo below] attended the Co-op Youth Rally at The College of Idaho as part of OPALCO’s Nourdine Jensen Cooperative Youth Scholarship Program. During the week-long leadership camp in July, four of the six students earned top scholarships ranging from $300-$600 from the Idaho Consumer-owned Utilities Association (ICUA), who hosts the camp.

OPALCO offers a $500 scholarship to students selected for the Nourdine Jensen Scholarship Program. New this year, the family of Nourdine Jensen on San Juan Island is matching each scholarship to give our island students $1,000 to continue their education.

OPALCO is grateful to the family of Nourdine Jensen for their generosity and excited to offer the children of our Co-op the opportunity to learn how to be strong leaders, active participants in the community - and, someday, engaged members of our electric co-op.
