Welcome to Aledo Main Street
2014 Aledo Main Street Scholarship Winners
The 4th Annual Aledo Main Street Scholarship was awarded
A total of 12 Mercer County High School Seniors applied for this scholarship. Shoppers who spent money at our local participating businesses were encouraged to vote for their favorite MCHS Senior. In general, each dollar the shopper spent equated to 1 vote for the student of choice, so $20 spent meant 20 votes for their favorite student. You might find it interesting to know that within the 24 participating businesses nearly 129,400 votes were cast. Also, in the past 4 years, over 421,000 votes have cast which equates to over $421,000 re-invested our community.
It is our honor to announce the 2014 Aledo Main Street Scholarship recipients are Michaela Baker, Zane Sackville, & Zeke Snyder.
