Lakeland Credit Union celebrated the 2021 graduating class by awarding $17,000 in scholarships this summer.
“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.”
The scholarship program is based on students’ involvement in their community, their leadership and their academics. Congratulations to the recipients of the 2021 Lakeland Credit Union Scholarship!
Scholarship applications for the 2022 graduating class will open in April 2022.
