Michigan Schools and Government Credit Union (MSGCU) announced a student is among 12 winners of its Rudolph Heino Scholarship awards.
Makayla McCoskey, chosen to receive the one-time scholarship, was honored at a reception at Michigan Schools and Government Credit Union on May 10.
“Each student who submitted an application is extraordinary,” Peter Gates, President and CEO of the Credit Union said. “Makayla clearly stood out as a shining example of the Credit Union philosophy, ‘people helping people’. We are honored to be able to award Makayla with a $1,000 scholarship that will help her reach her educational goals.”
The scholarship recipients clearly demonstrate a desire to overcome obstacles, dedicate themselves to worthy causes, and persevere toward their educational goals.
