Carly Bower of Delaware Academy and Faith Dianich of South Kortright Central school districts were presented with scholarships from Delhi Telephone Company for the upcoming school year. Both Carly and Faith plan to continue their education this fall; Carly Bower of Delaware Academy will be attending SUNY Delhi and Faith Dianich of South Kortright Central will be attending Flagler College in Saint Augustine, Florida.

The applicants underwent a selection process by submitting a short essay or creating a video that describes how technology has helped during the COVID-19 pandemic. This scholarship was established to recognize a graduating senior who is continuing his/her education and who demonstrates pride in their community.

DTC awards scholarships to neighboring school districts each year. The funds are raised at their annual Open House event which is held in August. The event features a basket raffle to raise the majority of the funds, with items donated by local businesses as well as DTC’s vendors and network affiliates. Although 2020 has had its challenges, DTC was still able to award scholarships to these deserving students.
