Credit Union awards scholarship

MUNCY – PALCO Federal Credit Union recently awarded the 2013 “Members Helping Members” Scholarship to Stephanie Bellott from Montoursville.

Bellott will be attending Elizabethtown College in the fall to pursue a degree in occupational therapy.

She was presented with a $500 “Members Helping Members” Scholarship at a dinner held with PALCO’s scholarship committee and her family at the Cloud 9 restaurant in Montoursville.

Bellott is a wonderful example of the credit union philosophy of “People Helping People” with her numerous extracurricular activities and countless hours of community service.

The “Members Helping Members” Scholarship was established seven years ago to reward individuals who demonstrate the credit union philosophy through volunteerism, community service, leadership and academic achievements.

PALCO would like to thank everyone that submitted applications and essays and wishes each of the applicants good luck in their journeys for higher education.
