ELLISVILLE – Three Jones County Junior College students were recently awarded scholarships from the Southeast Area Chapter of the Mississippi Engineering Society. The Student Engineering Society Chapter at JCJC hosted the annual Engineering Week luncheon when the professional engineering chapter awarded the scholarships. MES scholarships were awarded to Trey Winpegler of Laurel, Matthew Lee of Laurel, and Justin Hill of Columbia. Winpegler took home a $1000 scholarship while Lee and Hill both received $500 scholarships, providing each of the JCJC students with tuition assistance at Mississippi State University upon their transfer next fall. The scholarships are awarded based on academic performance, community leadership, financial need, and a written essay.
