Shaw awarded Cooperative Intern Scholarship


Sierra Shaw has been awarded a $1,600 Cooperative Intern Scholarship from Ohio’s Electric Cooperatives.

Shaw served as an intern at Holmes-Wayne Electric Cooperative for the 2016 and 2017 summers. In her position, Shaw assisted in a variety of community relations, member services, human resources, communications, and marketing tasks. She served as team coordinator for the co-op’s veterans honor trip, assisted with annual meetings, and filled in for full-time member services staff during vacations.

“It was refreshing to have a young adult with Sierra’s level of accountability and a positive attitude, strong work ethic, creativity, and commitment to project success,” said Robyn Tate, human resources and community relations coordinator at Holmes-Wayne Electric Cooperative.

Shaw is a student at the University of Akron.
