Anna from Taylors, South Carolina
A member since 2019, Anna is looking forward to graduating high school and studying Animal and Veterinary Science this fall.
“If and when I have children, I would plan on investing in an education savings account. In the future, when I purchase my first home, car, and/or business, I would definitely utilize the services of a credit union, such as CTFCU.”
Caitlin from Goose Creek, South Carolina
A member since 2007, Caitlin is excited to pursue a Bachelors of Science in Secondary Education and Biology.
“I believe that continuing to plan out my finances and making those plans more specific over time is the best way to ensure a financially sound future.”
Kaye from Indian Trail, North Carolina
A member since 2003, Kaye is working towards completing her Bachelors in Social Work.
“I chose to study social work for three main reasons: to work with children, to encourage them to see what their future-selves would look like, and to have them understand that becoming your own role model starts as soon as one begins to make significant choices.”
Elise from Charlotte, North Carolina
A member since 2003, Elise is excited to graduate from high school and attend Wingate University to study Biology.
“The only way towards a financially bright future is to educate oneself on the habits involved in maintaining financial stability.”
Nicole from Raleigh, North Carolina
A member since 1997, Nicole is a graduate student working towards her Masters in Social Work.
“Graduating from college and being 22 years old has really started to show me how important it is to be responsible with your money and to be smart about how you spend and save it.”
We would also like to congratulate Eunice and Evie, who were also awarded scholarships.
