First Community CU Awards $28,000 in Scholarships to Members
Wednesday, June 17, 2015 7:00 AM

After reviewing over 60 applications and conducting several interviews, First Community Credit Union announced seven winners of their 2015-2016 FCCU Scholarships.

Each scholarship recipient was awarded $4,000 to assist with tuition. Winners are FCCU members Caroline Bik, Raquel Freese, Zachary Janda, Steven Jiang, Karuna Kankani, Lillian Monteiro, and Jenna Polefko.

Scholarships were awarded to graduating high school seniors attending a college or university, maintained a required GPA, and are a primary member of FCCU.

Recipients were chosen based on their character, leadership, academic achievement, community involvement, an essay, and a one-on-one interview with a scholarship committee chair.

FCCU began as a credit union for teachers over 60 years ago and remains deeply rooted in many school districts in the Greater Houston Area.

Congratulations to all of the 2015-2016 FCCU scholarship winners. “It is exciting to see what the future holds for our scholarship winners," said First Community Credit Union President and CEO Ron Downing. "They are truly remarkable young people that are sure to do great things.”
