Pen Air invests in six graduating high school seniors

PENSACOLA, FLA (May 24, 2023) — Pen Air Credit Union (Pen Air) is excited to award six scholarships to local graduating high school seniors. Scholarships are awarded to student members based on the student’s academic performance and passion for helping others.

The Pen Air Scholarship Program was established to help Pen Air student members, who have a passion for helping others, pursue a post-secondary education toward an undergraduate or associate’s degree or trade certification. From its inception in 2010 through 2022, $171,500 in scholarships have been awarded to local graduating high school seniors.

“High school graduation is just the beginning for our student members.  Pen Air is proud to provide a small piece of financial help so these students can explore and chase their dreams,” says Casey Brueske, Community Education Development Specialist. “We can’t wait to see what they do in the coming years.”
