Local Student Awarded National Scholarship through Foundation for Rural Service

Shallotte, NC – A local Brunswick County student was recently awarded ascholarship through the Foundation for Rural Service (FRS), an organization which supports rural telecommunication companies and their members. FOCUS Broadband is a member of the FRS and each year the organization awards annual scholarships to qualifying students across rural America. This year, Zane Poulin, son of Jason and Cathie Poulin of Ocean Isle Beach, was awarded the $1,000 Roger Alan Cox Scholarship. Poulin plans to study Mechanical Engineering at North Carolina State University in the fall.

In 2017, FRS created the Roger Alan Cox Scholarship sponsored by Herman and Whiteaker, LLC. Roger Cox served Brunswick County in the rural telecommunications industry, spending the last 27 years of his life at ATMC primarily in leadership roles as Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager. This scholarship honors Roger’s passion and endless drive to help ensure that rural Americans have access to the same technology and education as every other American.

“Providing opportunities for young people in rural communities is a core mission for FRS,” said Pam Becker, Executive Director of FRS. “We are proud to partner with NTCA member companies, like FOCUS Broadband, and generous individuals in the industry to make these scholarships possible each year. Congratulations to Zane!”

The FRS Scholarship Program awards one-time scholarships to students across rural America for their first year of college, university or vocational-technical school. Each student is sponsored by an NTCA member company, like FOCUS Broadband, and NTCA members help spread the word in their communities about the available scholarships.
