Sun, Jul 7, 2013

Greenbelt, Maryland

Educational Systems FCU is proud to announce the recipients of six  Dorothy Marvil Memorial scholarships for high school seniors who will be attending a college or university in the fall. The Credit Union also awarded three community college scholarships to students from Montgomery College, Prince George's Community College, and The College of Southern Maryland who will be continuing their education in the fall as well. Each scholarship winner received $3,000 for the 2013-2014 academic school year.

The Dorothy Marvil Memorial scholarship recipients were selected after submitting an essay describing how Educational Systems FCU prepared them to make financial decisions while attending college so they can achieve their financial goals and dreams. The Community College scholarships recognized students who submitted essays about how a secondary education would help them achieve their financial goals and dreams. All high school and community college winners maintained a high grade point average (GPA), and are members of the Credit Union.

The Dorothy Marvil Memorial scholarship is given yearly in memory of Educational Systems FCU's first Board Secretary who was one of the founding members of the Credit Union in 1955. This was the first year the Credit Union awarded the Community College scholarships and plan to continue the tradition moving forward. Below are the 2013 winners of each award.
