CMCU announces scholarship winners
Central Minnesota Credit Union recently announced the recipients of the scholarship. A total of $15,000 in scholarships were 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?”
The $1,000-video scholarship winners are: Zachary Dehler – St. Joseph; Ashley Bartlett – Sartell; Eric Silvers – Albany; Megan Herdering, Freeport; Mitchell Niehaus – Melrose; Nathan Neuman – Avon; Kyle Nienaber – Albany; Brian Howey – Perham; Rebecca Scepaniak – Bowlus, Melissa Miller – West Union, and Adelaide Mueller – Melrose.
The $500-essay scholarship winners are: Brittney Jones – St. Joseph; Alli Kremers – Avon; Mary Hough – Long Prairie; Maria Bredeck – Waite Park; Kimberly Moy – Cokato; Alyssa Schultz – Eden Valley; Tayler Reller – Melrose; and Brittany Utsch – Paynesville.
“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.”
