The SECRC scholarship program started in 2004 and has awarded scholarships to 41 sons and daughters of Council members. We are proud to report that, out of the 41 recipients, 13 have completed all four years in the program, and the remaining 28 are all active in various levels of the program.

Scholarship recipients must attend an accredited College, University, or Technical School, submit an academic report at the end of each scholastic year, and maintain at least a B average to receive subsequent scholarship checks.
