Since 2013, The Young Professionals of Panola, also known as YPP, have sought to provide a means for our members to develop professionally, become active in the community, and build lasting relationships with others who are also interested in the ultimate well-being and quality of living in Panola County.
As part of its commitment to the growth and prosperity of Panola County, YPP has developed a onetime only scholarship to help area high school students pursue a college education. Our hope is that you will further your education in the field of your choice and return to Panola County to continue our efforts to make Panola County the best place to work and raise a family.
