Horizon Federal Credit Union awards 2013 Scholarships
"Let's be honest - college is a significant commitment, both academically and financially. Federal Credit Union understands this, and we want to do our part in helping pay for college education," said CEO Traci Donahue.
To help offset the expenses that accompany the pursuit of higher learning, the Horizon Federal Credit Union Scholarship was created. Each year Horizon awards two $500 scholarships to well-rounded student members who have made it a priority to give back to their communities while excelling in academics and extracurricular activities. Since its inception, Horizon has awarded $6,500 in scholarships.
Horizon Federal Credit Union is a community-based credit union with locations in Williamsport and Lock Haven. Anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Clinton or Lycoming County are eligible to open an account.
2013 recipients are Kara Heckman who will be attending Elizabethtown College majoring in occupational therapy and Hayley Orndorf who will be attending the University of Pittsburgh majoring in biology and chemistry.
