Final call for PEGTV’s Courcelle Scholarship applications

RUTLAND—PEGTV, Rutland County’s public access television station, will again award two scholarships of $2,000 to Rutland County high school seniors who have exhibited a high level of proficiency and interest in the video arts and intend to pursue postsecondary studies.

The 18th annual PEGTV Courcelle Scholarship honors the memory of Joe Courcelle for his pioneering work for public access television in Rutland. Joe Courcelle was an active member of the original board of directors, a dedicated independent producer and an integral part of the establishment of Rutland’s PEGTV.

A special selection committee will review the written applications and interview potential candidates. Applications have been sent to Rutland County high schools for distribution to interested candidates and are due by May 1, 2016.

Anyone interested in receiving an application may contact his or her high school guidance office or call Bryn Williams, Channel 20 program coordinator, at PEGTV at 802-747-0151.
