American 1 Credit Union Awards $10,000 in Scholarships
American 1 Credit Union has awarded 10 high school graduates from southern Michigan with $1,000 scholarships for their commitment to altruism and community service. American 1 offered the awards through their annual Community Involvement Scholarship Program.
Each student who applied submitted an essay on the benefits of altruism and how the student has impacted his or her community through their involvement. The scholarships are funded through American 1’s Skip-a-Pay program, where credit union members can choose to skip one month’s loan payment for $25. The $25 fees are then used to fund the scholarship program.
The 2018 American 1 Community Involvment Scholarship winners are:
• Katherine Powell of Brooklyn
• Sydney Davis-Green of Jackson
• Karlie Champion of Battle Creek
• Grant Glen of Grass Lake
• Ryan Jones of Sterling Heights
• Leah Pifer of Chelsea
• Hailey Cunningham of Jackson
• Taylor Thrush of Pleasant Lake
• Karsen McCord of Jackson
• Grant Weston of Deerfield
American 1 Credit Union serves over 53,000 members through 13 branches in seven counties. Based in Jackson, American 1 is proud to be Michigan, hosting more than 10 free, family-friendly events every year in the areas they serve. Visit www.american1cu.org for more information.
