2018 Scholarship Winners
Over the years, the Scholarship Committee has been challenged to pick just one member to be the recipient of our Memorial Scholarship. So, it was decided by the Board of Directors to forego an actual sit down dinner and use those funds to provide another well deserving student some relief of the financial burdens placed upon so many families today.
Therefore, Spirit Financial Credit Union is pleased to announce we are awarding two scholarships this year. Both students will receive $3,000 each for their continued education. Learning continues to be the lamp which illuminates our future. And this Scholarship is a visible expression of Spirit Financial Credit Union’s philosophy of “People Helping People”.
To be eligible, a member must submit an application telling us about themselves. They’re required to tell us where they plan to attend college and provide student transcripts showing grades and the classes they’ve taken. Finally, we require a brief essay explaining why the student wants to further their education, and the reason for submitting the application.
It is our honor to announce our two scholarship winners, Carly Bonfig and Sarah Dawson.
Carly will be graduating from Conwell-Egan Catholic High School in June, 2018. She plans to attend Temple University where she will major in Elementary and Special Education. In keeping with the mindset she’s had from a young age about the importance of hard work and education, Carly’s interest is to influence the next generation of children with that same love of learning and hard work ethic that has served her so well.
Sarah graduated from Neshaminy High School in 2015 and is currently attending Temple University in the Nursing Program with a minor in Spanish. Following in the footsteps of her mother, who is an LPN, Sarah looks forward to making a difference in patient health-care and is motivated by the intimate nurse/patient relationship that bonds and heals.
