Ashley Bartlett of Sartell was recently awarded a scholarship from Central Minnesota Credit Union. A total of $15,000 in scholarships was awarded; $11,000 for video scholarships; and $4,000 for essay scholarships. Every year, CMCU offers scholarships to CMCU members to further their education at a two- or four-year college.
This year, more than 148 students applied for the scholarships throughout CMCU’s field of membership. Video scholarships were based on a creative and unique 30-second to one-minute video commercial for CMCU. Essay scholarships were based on the question, “If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?”
Eleven $1,000-video scholarship winners included Bartlett and 10 others from St. Joseph, Albany, Avon, Bowlus, Freeport, Melrose, Perham and West Union.
Eight $500-essay scholarship winners included students from St. Joseph, Avon, Cokato, Eden Valley, Long Prairie, Melrose, Paynesville and Waite Park.
“We are honored to have the opportunity to present these students with scholarships,” said Central Minnesota Credit Union President/CEO, Rick Odenthal, “they are the future leaders and we encourage them to continue to work hard and make a difference.”
