Humanitarian Highlight 05.26.22
This week's #HumanitarianHighlight is on CUs spreading compassion in the community. Here are a few credit unions doing their best to create a brighter future.
Cascade helped spread compassion in the community by awarding three recipients with $1,500 scholarships as part of their yearly Pathfinder Scholarship program. Originating in 1987, the program started as a single $500 scholarship. Winners are selected by their demonstration of leadership, scholastic determination, and personal ambition.
In honor of the 32nd year of its scholarship program, SELCO Community credit union is awarding $52,500 in college scholarships to 20 graduating high school seniors. Each recipient will be awarded a $2,500 scholarship, but $5,000 will be awarded to the recipient of the Richard Metzler Opportunity Scholarship. The virtual scholarship ceremony was hosted live via Instagram on May 13th.
Red Crown Credit Union does a great job of providing aid throughout the community. Following a successful blood drive, they donated $3,000 to the Claremore Public Schools NJROTC STEM program. Donating money or blood is a great way to help create a brighter future.
