American Heritage Credit Union awards 30 scholarships


American Heritage Credit Union has awarded 30 $1,000 college scholarships to young credit union members.

American Heritage Credit Union’s Scholarship Committee selected the 2020 scholarship recipients based on their scholarly merits, community and school involvement, a letter of recommendation, and a submitted essay describing how their most meaningful accomplishments have impacted their future goals.

In lieu of the traditional Scholarship Banquet held at American Heritage’s Main Campus, the winners were celebrated in a video posted to American Heritage’s Facebook page. The compilation shows the winners holding signs and sporting the logo of their chosen undergraduate institution.

Last year, American Heritage’s Scholarship Program was rechristened the Cecelia B. Grady Annual Scholarship Program, which honors American Heritage’s Chairperson Emerita Cecelia Grady, who retired from the American Heritage board of directors that year. Grady served on American Heritage’s board of directors for over 40 years and her dedication to financial literacy, education and member satisfaction will be her legacy.
