Tim and Diane Mueller, owners of Okemo Mountain Resort, will offer eleven scholarship awards for the 2003 school year to high school seniors and college students to assist them to further their education. Okemo has been offering scholarship awards to students since 1988 as a symbol of their commitment to the region's youth and education. Criteria used to select the scholarship recipients include academic achievement, co-curricular involvement and the composition of an essay.
For the 2003 school year, a total of eleven scholarship awards will be offered to high school seniors and college students. The Okemo Mountain Employee Student Scholarship Awards will be presented to four high school or college students who are employed at Okemo. The Okemo Mountain Dependent Student Scholarship Awards will be presented to four dependents of Okemo employees who are high school seniors or to a student
enrolled in a degree program. The Tom Croney Scholarship Award will be presented to a student pursuing a career in a technical field and is given in the memory of Tom Croney, an Okemo employee who set an example through his dedication to Okemo and its guests. The Okemo Creative Endeavors Scholarship was created by the Okemo Fine Arts Council to assist employees
and their dependents (ages 13 and up) in furthering their interest in the arts. Awardees may attend programs and seminars related to art, drama, music and creative writing. The John F. Mueller Scholarship Award is new for 2003 and was formed by the staff at Okemo in memory of Dr. John F. Mueller. This award is available to a staff member who is pursuing a career in medicine.
All scholarship awards are determined prior to graduation and past recipients may re-apply each year. Okemo Scholarship application forms
can be picked up inside the Main Office at Okemo, or interested students can either call or email Okemo's Human Resource Office at jobs@okemo.com
or (802) 228-1963 for more information. Completed scholarship applications must be returned to the Okemo Human Resource Office by May 10, 2002.
