Advancial awards three exceptional Dinero Teens
DALLAS, TX (May 26, 2015) — Advancial Federal Credit Union continues to support higher education by awarding scholarships in the amount of $3,000, $2,000 and $1,000 to three exceptional Dinero Teens members.
For this year’s scholarship, Dinero Teens were tasked with sharing their story using one of the following topics.
- Describe a life experience that changed your perspective.
- Why do you want to go on to higher education?
- Reflect on a time when you challenged a belief or idea. What prompted you to act? Would you make the same decision again?
The first place winner received a $3,000 scholarship for an inspirational presentation that captured his battle with Leukemia and humanized the face of cancer. The second place winner described how battling an illness taught him to value life and overcome its obstacles with optimism and determination. Advancial gave the final award for an unforgettable essay. Following a personal experience, this inspired Dinero Teen created a support group for the siblings of autistic children. Way to go Dinero Teens!
