     Established in 1987, the Scholarship honors John and Mary Louise Christian who owned the Lincoln County Telephone System until their tragic death in an automobile accident near Panaca, NV in November 1986. John and Mary Louise were active in operating their company as well as being involved in continuing efforts for the economic development of Lincoln County and their hometown of Pioche.

     The scholarship recognizes academic achievement and service to school and community, which embody the ideals of John and Mary Louise Christian.

     The NTA sends the scholarship application to all active and associate member companies the first part of January each year. Completed applications are due no later than March 15th.
