Shelter Insurance Foundation, Kelli Sampson Agency sponsor local high school scholarship


This spring, the Shelter Insurance Foundation will award two $2,000 scholarships to a graduate of Natchitoches Central, Lakeview High School or St. Mary’s High School. Shelter Agent Kelli Sampson sponsors and partially funds this scholarship. A committee of local high school officials and community leaders will select the local recipient.

The committee will consider each applicant’s scholastic achievements, educational goals, citizenship, moral character and participation and leadership in school and community activities. The scholarship is given without regard to race, disability, religion, national origin or gender of applicants. The name of the recipient will be announced at the close of the school year. The student may apply the scholarship funds toward tuition, fees, or campus housing for any course of study beginning the fall after the recipient’s high school graduation and leading to an academic degree at any accredited college or university.

The Foundation makes payment directly to the school the recipient selects. Applications and additional information about the Shelter Foundation Scholarship will be available in January and should be completed and returned to the school official serving on the selection committee by March 31. For more information, interested seniors should contact Shelter Insurance Agent Kelli Sampson via email , by phone 318-352-0000 or in person at 713 Keyser Ave.

One purpose of the Shelter Insurance Foundation is to fund scholarships within the operating territory of Shelter Insurance®.

Shelter offers auto, home, life, farm and business insurance services via a network of local insurance agents in our operating territory.
