Education First Federal Credit Union presents $36,000 to local high school seniors

To The Leader

Education First Federal Credit Union is proud to announce its scholarship recipients for the Class of 2020. Each year representatives from Education First personally present students from 36 high schools in Southeast Texas with their $1,0000 scholarships. Due to COVID-19 those ceremonies were cancelled. In lieu of in-person presentations EFFCU has put together a video honoring this year’s scholarship recipients that can be viewed on our website, www.EducationFirstFCU.org.
