A selection of area students have been named to a scholarship honor sponsored by River Cities Community Credit Union.
Mattie Dougherty, Jaycee Ernzen, Jessica Janorschke, Jack Kocour, Lakelynn Owens and Riley Smith have been named recipients of the Joseph M. Carrigan Memorial Scholarship. Each of these recipients will receive $1,000 towards their college education. River Cities has given over $40,000 in scholarships over the past 23 years.
Joe Carrigan was well known for his involvement in the community. He was instrumental in the formation of River Cities Community Credit Union, formerly known as McCormick Midwest Employees Credit Union, and it is an honor to award scholarships in his memory.
A number of factors are taken into consideration in the choice of the recipients: involvement in school, grades, citizenship, involvement in the community and an essay on credit unions. All applicants, either themselves or their parents, must be a member of the credit union.
In the essay, applicants have a chance to tell how the credit union has benefited either themselves or their families. River Cities Community Credit Union is pleased and proud to honor these accomplished students.
The Joe M. Carrigan Golf Tournament is held each year to fund the scholarship. This year it will be held on June 8 at Bellevue Golf Club. If you are interested in participating in the golf tournament, please call the Credit Union at 913-367-1488.
