Farris awarded college scholarship

Posted
Mollie Farris of Cleveland has been selected as this year’s recipient of Bowater Credit Union’s annual $2,000 college scholarship.
 
In order to receive this scholarship, she competed against many other students who were evaluated based on grades, school activities, civic activities and an essay on the importance of credit unions in the lives of young adults.
 
"We are proud to have Mollie representing Bowater Credit Union and her community," said Kim Gunter, VP Marketing of Bowater Credit Union.
 
She recently graduated from Walker Valley High School and will soon be entering the nursing program at Lee University. 
 
Her winning essay stated that "credit unions serve as great supporters in teaching both the youth and the more established people of society about financial security." She later added credit union membership promotes "a strong sense of community."  
 
To apply for Bowater Credit Union’s Annual $2,000 College Scholarship you must be a graduating senior and must be a member of the credit union before March 1 of the year you graduate.  Applications are available online at www.bowaterecu.org/youth-services.
 
Bowater Credit Union is a federally insured credit union offering savings, checking, loans and financial education to those who live, work, worship or go to school in the counties of Bradley, McMinn, Meigs, Monroe and Polk.  Bowater CU has five branches, over 17,700 members, and $195 million in assets.
