PFCU to Award McCrumb Scholarships to 10 High School Seniors at their 71st Annual Meeting this Satur
PFCU has completed the task of selecting 10 high school seniors from the 2019 graduating class as McCrumb Scholarship recipients. These students were selected from the communities PFCU serves to equally share in $10,000 of scholarship monies. PFCU invited these McCrumb Scholarship winners to attend the 71st Annual PFCU Annual Meeting that was held last week. There, the winners were announced and presented with their scholarship check and the opportunity to meet fellow award winners. The PFCU scholarship committee took many hours to review scholarship applications, and met to select the winners from a very qualified pool of candidates.
PFCU has been offering $1,000 McCrumb Scholarships for the past 18 years and this year is no different. The purpose of the McCrumb Scholarship is to recognize and encourage scholastic achievement, community involvement and excellence in character. PFCU awards a total of 10 scholarships and encouraged students who were seeking education in a skilled‐trade to apply as well. “Skilled Trade occupations are in high demand and we anticipate that demand will continue” said Madeline Shellberg, Community Outreach and Education Specialist for PFCU. She went on to say “PFCU is proud to give back to its communities and this is just one more way to celebrate our members, especially those taking their first few steps into adulthood and establishing their own financial habits and goals.”
PFCU strives to be the leader in empowering students, specifically graduating seniors, to continue their education. In that spirit, PFCU plans on continuing this scholarship tradition.
PFCU is a full‐service financial institution with thirteen office locations throughout mid/west Michigan, over 50,000 members and $530 million in assets. To find out more, visit our website at www.pfcu4me.com.
