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.
