Dylan Montgomery Flippo is the recipient of the 2021 Mississippi Association of Supervisors County Employee Scholarship.
Flippo, a senior at Strayhorn High School, was recognized by the Tate County Board of Supervisors at its recessed meeting Monday, May 17, and awarded a check for $500. He is the son of Junior and Maryjo Flippo.
“We are honored to present this scholarship to such a deserving young man,” said Tony Sandridge, President of the Tate County Board of Supervisors. “We are proud of his successes throughout his high school career. We are especially proud of his ability to overcome the challenges of advancing his education during the pandemic and being declared Salutatorian of his graduating class. We wish him much success in furthering his education at Mississippi State University, and we hope he returns to Tate County at the completion of his studies to start his professional career.”
The MAS County Employee Scholarship program awarded $30,000 in scholarships this year to dependents of current or retired county employees in Mississippi.
“This is one way our association can give back to the employees of our counties,” said Derrick Surrette, MAS Executive Director. “We hope to have an even greater response to the program next year.”
