Alliant Credit Union Member Awarded Scholarship from Iowa Credit Union Foundation
DUBUQUE, IOWA – Alyssa Reynolds of Alliant Credit Union (ACU) was recently awarded the Iowa Credit Union Foundation’s (ICUF) Warren A. Morrow Memorial Scholarship, which is presented each year to credit union members who are pursing higher education.
Applicants were asked to complete the designated online entry form and answer an essay question in no more than 500 words. This year’s question was:
Credit Unions are financial cooperatives that operate from the philosophy of “people helping people.” Service to members and the community is an integral part of the credit union difference. Share how your credit union demonstrates the people helping people philosophy in action. Also, share an experience of when you contributed your time and/or talents in the community and what you learned from that experience.
Alyssa won for her entry, describing how Alliant Credit Union gives back to the communities it serves. She also outlined how she, herself, has followed ACU’s lead and gives back to her community as well.
This year, the Iowa Credit Union Foundation awarded 12 scholarships totaling $23,000.
“The mission of the Iowa Credit Union Foundation (ICUF) is to empower people and communities to achieve financial well-being by championing the credit union philosophy of people helping people,” said Jaimie Miller, Executive Director, ICUF. “We do this through critical programs such as the Warren A. Morrow Memorial Scholarship. This year’s scholarship finalists demonstrated a strong passion for their credit union and outstanding knowledge on the essay topics.”
