Quick awarded FPU Student Utility Board scholarship

Libby Quick receives a $1,000 scholarship check from FPU CEO/General Manager, Britt Dye.

Libby Quick, daughter of Clint and Heather Dickey and the late Wesley Quick, was awarded the Fayetteville Public Utilities Student Utility Board (SUB) scholarship. She was awarded the scholarship based on her application and points earned throughout the year as a SUB member.

The FPU $1,000 scholarship is designed to help Quick offset enrollment expenses at the college, university or technical/trade school she chooses to attend. The only requirement for the scholarship is the college, university or technical/trade school must be a public Tennessee state-funded institution. Quick plans to attend Motlow State Community College to pursue her degree.

The scholarship was previously awarded to Will Ellis. At the time the scholarship was awarded, Will planned to enroll at Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville. Ellis has decided to attend Bethel University (a private institution) in McKenzie, TN this fall to pursue his degree vacating the scholarship.

“We had an outstanding group of young people serving on our Student Utility Board this year,” said Dye. “Will and Libby both worked diligently to gain first-hand knowledge about customer service, community partnership, employee teamwork and more.”
