WBHS 2016State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) members via the SECU Foundation, presented a $10,000 four-year college scholarship to Allison Brooke Morris, a senior at West Bladen High School.  Allison is the daughter of Dean and Valerie Morris.  This scholarship was awarded for study at NC State University, part of North Carolina’s   17-campus University of North Carolina System.

Funded solely by Credit Union members and given based on SECU’s philosophy of “People Helping People,” the scholarship recognizes the recipient’s community involvement, leadership skills, character and integrity, as well as scholastic achievement. The scholarship is provided for tuition and university approved educational expenses over eight consecutive semesters.

State Employees’ Credit Union’s local Advisory Board member Sharon Anderson comments, “Through the SECU Foundation ‘People Helping People’ Scholarship program, Credit Union members have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of so many North Carolina high school seniors, helping them pursue and fulfill their educational goals through the University of North Carolina System.  Our commitment to education remains strong as we enter into the 10th year of this great program.  On behalf of the SECU Foundation, I am proud to award this scholarship to Allison Brooke Morris.”

Since its inception in 2005, the SECU Foundation “People Helping People” High School Scholarship program has provided nearly $40 million in scholarships for North Carolina high school seniors.
