“Throughout my high school career, I have pursued every chance that I could to better myself, and more importantly those around me.” - Eric Olsen
Lansing, MI (PRWEB) July 25, 2012
Lake Trust Credit Union has awarded Michigan high school student and Credit Union member, Eric Olsen, a $500 College Scholarship, through the organization’s Lake To Lake Michigan Scholarship Program.
The Program provides financial assistance to three high school students seeking a higher level of education.
Olsen exemplifies many of the principles that Lake Trust looks for in its scholarship recipients: Trust, Teamwork, Adaptability, Learning, and Making a Difference; which are the organization’s core values.
Throughout high school, Olsen has been involved in many extra-curricular activities such as President of the National Honor Society and Student Council as well as community work for the American Cancer Society and Relay for Life.
Olsen will attend Michigan State University for Mechanical Engineering in the fall.
“I believe that I fully deserve to receive the Lake Trust Scholarship,” said Olsen. “Throughout my high school career, I have pursued every chance that I could to better myself, and more importantly those around me.”
Nicole Piche, Student Program Specialist at Lake Trust, appreciates the opportunity to assist these students.
“Eric is very deserving of this award and I’m thankful we’re able to help provide this opportunity to him and others,” says Piche. “We’re committed to supporting our members’ desire to attain a higher education.”
