MWEC Amps Up Scholarship Offerings

We know that one of the best investments a community can make is in education. That’s why we award scholarships each year to students in the communities we serve.

Through our commitment to education our hope is that students are better positioned to build skills and knowledge needed to help our communities grow and prosper.
