DUBLIN – State Employees Credit Union Members, through the member-funded SECU Foundation, have awarded scholarships to Bladen Community College students Felicia Graham, Carie McLean, Clarissa Patterson, and Crystal Lewis. All four students are enrolled in the Nursing Assistant II program.
Based on the credit union philosophy of people helping people, these scholarships recognize the students’ leadership, excellence of character, integrity, and community involvement. Scholarship funds will be applied to tuition and other expenses associated with their community college education.
State Employee’s Credit Union local advisory board member Cynthia McKoy comments, “My fellow SECU members and I are dedicated to helping students succeed in their pursuit of higher education. The SECU People Helping People Scholarship Program allows us the opportunity to provide resources for many deserving individuals to attain their educational goals through our state’s excellent community college system. As a representative of the SECU, I am very pleased to award these scholarships to these students.”
Annually, SECU members provide two “People Helping People” scholarships to each of the 58 community colleges in North Carolina through the SECU Foundation Scholarship Program. To date, over $6 million has been awarded to help the state’s community college students further their education.
