We Power You Scholarship Winners

Alfalfa Electric Cooperative, Inc. is delighted to announce the 2023 We Power You Senior Scholarship recipients. This new scholarship was established to support seniors in furthering their college or trade school education. The scholarship aims to help students pursue a career path that aligns with their interests and passion. We were proud to present the first four recipients with this scholarship at their school awards assemblies in May. They have all demonstrated outstanding academic achievement, leadership skills and dedication. 




ISAIAH LYONS, Medford High School, plans to attend Meridian Technology Center to pursue a career as a utility lineman. With his father and grandfather being linemen, it was only natural for Isaiah to follow in their footsteps. However, what motivates Isaiah is the opportunity to help others. He is determined to make a difference in his community, working as a lineman and helping to restore power when outages occur. 






ABBY GUFFY, Cherokee High School, will attend Northwestern Oklahoma State University with plans to become a high school teacher and basketball coach. Abby’s uncle is a teacher and coach, and she considers him a role model. She aspires to create a positive and inspiring environment for her students just like her teachers and coaches did for her. Abby is determined to impact the lives of her future students significantly. 





BROOKE WHITTET, Burlington High School, will attend Emporia State University in Kansas, pursuing a degree in nursing. Brooke’s passion for helping people live their best life has driven her to pursue a career in nursing. She is determined to make a meaningful difference in the lives of her patients, whether in a hospital or nursing home setting. 






BAYLEE OISTER, Cherokee High School, is pursuing a degree in pre-dentistry at Northwestern Oklahoma State University. Baylee has always been fascinated by dentistry and had the chance to work for her mother while growing up. She hopes to follow in her mother’s footsteps and take over her mother’s dental practice in Cherokee. Baylee is passionate about serving her community and providing quality dental care to those who need it. 



We are proud of all four scholarship recipients and excited to watch them achieve great things in their future careers. We are confident that their dedication, hard work and determination will take them far, and they will continue to impact their communities positively. Congratulations to Isaiah, Abby, Brooke and Baylee on receiving the We Power You Senior Scholarship!
