June 12, 2024

For Immediate Release: June 12, 2024

Roswell, GA: In a recent ceremony, XCEL (xceltoday.com), in collaboration with Clark Brothers Roofing & Construction (Roswell, GA), proudly awarded their first scholarship check to Emmaline Cochran, a standout senior from Fannin County High School. The event, held at the Clark Brothers office in Roswell, highlighted the commitment of both organizations to support young adults in North Georgia pursuing careers in the trades.

Emmaline Cochran, pictured center, received the scholarship from Jay Thompson, Darrell Galloway, Tyler Blaylock, and Luke Clark. Emmaline will attend Tri-County Community College this fall to pursue an Associate’s degree in Welding Technology. Her impressive achievements include excelling in her high school welding class, passing a 3G stick test per AWS D1.1 code, and competing in multiple welding competitions. Last summer, she attended the prestigious Women of Welding Camp at Texas State University, where she was one of only 20 girls selected nationwide.

Emmaline’s journey into welding began unexpectedly in an Occupational Safety class, but her passion and dedication quickly became evident. She has served as the SkillsUSA chapter Vice President and President during her junior and senior years, respectively, showcasing her leadership and commitment to the trade.

XCEL, an organization focused on helping Georgia high school students and young adults enter the trades, played a crucial role in this scholarship initiative. They plan to award another $1,000 scholarship this fall to help another young North Georgia adult achieve their dreams and contribute to the skilled trades industry. Their mission aligns with Clark Brothers’ dedication to fostering the next generation of skilled tradespeople.
