LCU Gives $17,000 in Scholarships to 2021 Graduates
This year has been filled with more Zoom calls, Google Meets, online classrooms and postponed events than we ever anticipated. Finally you have arrived at graduation, a time when you are simultaneously looking back at all the memories while looking forward to the future. We want to take a moment to celebrate the now.
If you are a 2021 graduate: pause, take a deep breath in, and do a little happy dance– because you did it! This is a milestone for you, your families, classmates, teachers and all of the people in your life. All of us here at Lakeland Credit Union are so proud of all of the graduates and their families for overcoming numerous obstacles that this year presented.
“We know that the students of the Lakeland have overcome so many different obstacles this year getting to the finish line that is graduation. Our Board of Directors feels passionately about continued education and collectively decided to go above and beyond and award 17 students with our scholarship this year,” said Charmaine Code, Board Chair. “We know funding is one of the major stressors and obstacles that post-secondary students face and we are proud to be able to alleviate a portion of this stress for these students after they succeeded in navigating this challenging year.”
