2022 Come Home Scholarship Winners

Congratulations 2022 Come Home Scholarship Recipients!

Each year Macon County Economic Development offers three Come Home Scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each. Applicants must be a senior in high school in Macon County, have a GPA of no less than 2.0, demonstrate a trouble-free high school career, and a desire to return to Macon County after further education, and plan to attend college or technical school no later than the fall semester following high school graduation. We received many excellent scholarship applications and wish we could help more students further their educations. This year’s recipients are Joselyn Alkire from Bevier High School, Sofia Burks from Macon R-1 High School and McKenzie Lagle of Macon R-1 High School. Congratulations to these recipients and the the Class of 2022!
