Summit Credit Union awards over $60,000 in scholarships

GREENSBORO, NC (April 27, 2021) — Summit Credit Union is pleased to announce awarding over $60,000 in scholarship grants for fall 2021 and spring 2022 semesters. Sixty-two students were selected based on their academic achievements and their involvement in school and community-related activities. The scholarship funds issued will be used towards each recipient’s college-related expenses.

“We are proud, especially after an unprecedented year, that we were able to support this effort in memory of Elizabeth ‘Sis’ and James ‘Jim’ Hamilton, who, thanks to their generosity, largely supports our college scholarship program to this day. In spirit of their life-long goal to offer educational opportunities to the community, Summit Credit Union strongly supports the pursuit of knowledge and education through both our consumer financial literacy and our college scholarship programs to continue their legacy,” says Sam Whitehurst, President and CEO of Summit Credit Union.

Summit Credit Union offers scholarships to any member, adult, or high school senior who expects to attend an educational program beyond high school as a full-time student. Scholarships are given through the Elizabeth H. and James V. Hamilton Scholarship Fund. Applications for the next academic year of 2022-2023 can be submitted for consideration on our website beginning October 1, 2021.
