Ontario Shores Federal Credit Union is pleased to announce the winners of their OSFCU College Scholarship program. Receiving scholarships of $500 were Kylie Annable from Barker Central School; Nathan Sherman, Medina Central School; Reese Rudnick, Newfane Central School; Patrick Seeley, Wilson Central School and Sawyer Wilson, Lockport Central School.
The winners were selected based on applications submitted by high school seniors from Barker, Lyndonville, Medina, Newfane and Wilson schools, in addition to any Ontario Shores Federal Credit Union members attending other area schools. Applications were judged on academic performance, curricular, extra-curricular and community activities, teacher references, essays and personal goals.
This is the twenty-first year Ontario Shores FCU has extended scholarship opportunities to high school students in Niagara and Orleans counties, awarding a total of $71,000 over that time span. "The scholarships are our way of helping today's youth get a better education, which will ultimately allow them greater opportunities later in life", said Mark Ruppert, CEO of Ontario Shores.
