Mediacom Communications announced the selection of Kadyn Stevens, a Watseka High School senior, as a recipient of the company’s World Class Scholarship program. The award recognizes the Watseka resident for outstanding leadership and academic accomplishments, according to the news release. Mediacom annually selects 60 graduating seniors who each receive $1,000 scholarships to support their post-secondary education.

“As a technology company, Mediacom understands how important it is to invest in future leaders like Kadyn Stevens,” said Group Vice President, Todd Curtis. “I’m proud that my company supports talented local students with scholarship support, and we congratulate Kadyn on her accomplishments.”

This year marks the 19th consecutive year Mediacom has funded World Class Scholarships for students who live in areas served by the cable and broadband company. On average, approximately 1,200 students apply for the scholarships each year. Recipients must attend an accredited two-year or four-year college, university or technical school within the United States.

Mediacom plans to continue funding its World Class Scholarships in all areas where it provides digital cable and broadband services. High school administrators will be notified in the fall of 2020 when scholarship applications become available online for students in the Class of 2021.
