Special to The Leader
Education First Federal Credit Union is proud to announce its scholarship recipients for the Class of 2016. Over the last several weeks, representatives from Education First have personally presented $1000 scholarships to seven high school seniors in Orange County.
Last year, the amount of the scholarship was increased from $750 to $1000, and since 1999, when we first began distributing our scholarship, we have given out $340,000. This year’s round of grads throughout will bring that total to $377,000.
The recipients are chosen by their counselors or by their high school’s scholarship committee each year, and a certificate is presented by a representative from Education First at each school’s scholarship awards presentation.
The 2016 recipients from Orange County are:
Bridge City High School Jose Torres
Community Christian School Danielle Gyasi
Deweyville High School Abigail Gentz
Little Cypress Mauriceville High School Rebecca Brown
Orangefield High School Kori Brown
Vidor High School Maegan Moore
West Orange Stark High School Desiree Howard
