Cloverland Announces Power of Excellence Scholarship Recipients

Cloverland Electric Cooperative is proud to announce this year’s three recipients of a one-time $1,500 Power of Excellence Scholarship.

  • District A: Hayley Malaska, Rudyard High School, will attend Northern Michigan University to study psychology in preparation for additional studies to become a psychologist for children.
  • District B: Victoria Vining, Sault Area High School, will attend Central Michigan University to pursue a degree in environmental studies with a minor in leadership.
  • District C: Katelyn Arnold, Manistique Area High School, will attend Grand Valley State University to major in exercise science in preparation for additional studies in medicine.

These high school seniors excelled in school achievements, community service and expressing one of three cooperative-related topics through an essay. Cloverland applauds all the ways these students contribute to their respective communities and extends best wishes for each recipient’s academic and career goals. Ms. Malaska, Ms. Vining and Ms. Arnold will be recognized at their respective school’s award ceremony in May.

“Cloverland is proud to support these exceptional students as they pursue their career aspirations,” says Cloverland’s President and CEO Mike Heise.

Cloverland Electric operates by the seven principles that guide all electric cooperatives across the United States. The Power of Excellence Scholarship is an example of the education, training and information principle. Cooperatives provide education and training for its members, elected representatives, managers and employees so they can contribute effectively to the development of their cooperatives. They inform the general public, particularly young people and opinion leaders, about the nature and benefits of cooperatives.

Since 2002, Cloverland has awarded $48,250 in scholarships to 62 high school seniors. For more information about this program and others, visit
