State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) members via the SECU Foundation, presented a $10,000 four-year college scholarship to Benjamin Cobb, a senior at South Rowan High School. Benjamin is the son of Jamie and Malia Cobb. This scholarship was awarded for study at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
State Employees’ Credit Union members also presented a $10,000 four-year college scholarship to Priyenka Khatiwada, a senior at Northwest Cabarrus High School. Priyenka is the daughter of Janak Khatiwada. This scholarship was awarded for study at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Funded solely by Credit Union members and given based on SECU’s philosophy of “People Helping People,” the scholarships recognize 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.
SECU’s local advisory board member Will Crabtree 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 9th year of this great program.”
