Genisys Credit Union Presents Adams High School DECA Scholarship

AUBURN HILLS, MI (June 11, 2013) Genisys Credit Union, which provides services to anyone who lives or works in the Lower Peninsula, recently sponsored the $500 DECA Exemplary Marketing Student Scholarship, awarded to Adams High School student Emily Philips.

This year, the DECA club earned recognition from DECA Inc. for their participation in the Thrive campaigns. Philips helped organize and implement DECA’s community service and promotional campaigns for Thrive.

For the promotional campaign, the club participated in community outreach programs, school-based events and communicated with their alumni members.

For DECA’s community service campaign, the chapter hosted a school wide Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Miracle Minute, where they raised over $3,200. This earned the chapter a top 10 recognition nationally for their contributions to the MDA.

Philips was instrumental in the promotional and community service successes of the Adams High School DECA club. Genisys Credit Union rewarded Philips for all of her hard work by presenting her with a $500 scholarship for her to use towards higher education.

“She is an exemplary student in the classroom and a proud member of the DECA Club,” said Vince LoPiccolo, Adams DECA teacher.

“Genisys Credit Union is proud of Emily for all of her hard work in making a difference with MDA and in the community,” said Linda Zabik, Manager of Public Relations & Community Involvement. “We wish her the best of luck with her future endeavors.”
