Congratulations Georgia United 2017 Scholarship Winners 

 

Georgia United Credit Union is excited to announce the winners of the 23rd Annual Scholarship Competition. Since its inception, nearly $200,000 has been awarded to high school seniors.

In 2017, a total of $27,500 was awarded to four high school seniors through scholarships named for the credit union’s founder, Vernon E Carne and notable board members Geraldine Tilson, Dorothy Dusenberry and Polly Hinde. Recipients were chosen based on a video competition with consideration given to academic accomplishments, leadership and participation in both school and community activities.

This year’s video application process had students answer the question:

“Georgia United was founded on the principles of supporting the community through education. How you are going to use your education to help your community?"
