Lansing, MI (PRWEB) June 24, 2015
Lake Trust Credit Union is committed to advancing their members’ success. In doing so, the organization feels strongly in supporting local high school seniors in furthering their education. Each year, through the Lake Trust Foundation, established in 2012, the Credit Union awards 10 Michigan high school students heading to college, a $1,000 scholarship.
This year, Gary Henderson, Jr. of Lansing was chosen as one of those scholarship recipients. Henderson and 9 others, planning to attend a college in Michigan, were awarded the scholarship. The Credit Union received 157 applications in all.
“Throughout our experience, we’ve heard a lot of truly remarkable stories from students all across Michigan,” says David Snodgrass, Lake Trust Credit Union President and CEO. ”We’re inspired by each student’s commitment to their future, and honored to be part of their path to educational success.”
Every year, the Credit Union announces their scholarship program at the first of the year, and accepts applications through the end of February. Lake Trust assembles a team that reviews each application. Scholarship recipients are community-minded students who exemplify the Credit Union’s core values of Trust, Teamwork, Adaptability, Learning and Making a Difference.
“Our goal is to put young people on a path to help them reach their full potential,” says Keith Koppmeier, with the Lake Trust Foundation. “We know that education plays an important role in that journey, which is the reason our Foundation has always been committed to helping students here in Michigan to pursue higher education.”
