Honor Credit Union to award 25 high school seniors with scholarship

BERRIEN SPRINGS — A regional credit union will be offering scholarships to area high school seniors this year.

Honor Credit Union officials said they are proud to support local outstanding high school seniors with the annual Honor Credit Union Community Commitment Scholarship. The credit union will award a $1,000 scholarship to 25 graduating high school or home school seniors throughout Honor’s 25 branch communities. 

To be considered for the scholarship, the student must be a primary account holder at Honor Credit Union. The graduating senior must complete an online application detailing their academic performance and community involvement. In addition, applicants will be asked to provide a 300 to 400-word essay explaining how they have made their community a better place. 

“We believe in the power of local involvement, and this scholarship allows us to recognize and support the next generation of leaders who are already making a difference in their communities,” said Honor’s Communication and Brand Manager, Stacey Carlin.

Applications may be submitted between now and March 15. Scholarship winners will be announced in late April. To access the application form and view the complete list of requirements, please visit honorcu.com/scholarships. 

Honor Credit Union serves more than 85,000 members across the state of Michigan. Providing solutions for financial success and giving back to the communities it serves remains the driving force behind Honor Credit Union, said officials.
