We are excited to announce Rachel LaFerriere (Toledo Metro Federal Credit Union), Nicholas Kudlapur (Atomic Credit Union), and Sean Ambrose (KEMBA Financial Credit Union) were awarded the Ohio Credit Union Foundation’s annual video scholarship prizes, available to Ohio credit union members continuing their education through a trade school or traditional college during the 2020-21 school year. More than forty video submissions were received, prompting applicants to submit a commercial promoting the benefits of membership if they were now the CEO and running their credit union. Each video showcased the creativity and hard work of our applicants, making the decision a difficult one. Ultimately, Rachel LaFerriere’s video capturing the day she started running the credit union snagged the top prize, landing her $5,000 in scholarship money towards her education at the University of Dayton.
Congratulations to this year’s recipients and we wish great success to all those who participated in this year’s OCUF Student Video Scholarship! And thank you to Ohio’s credit unions for your generous Foundation support in making scholarship opportunities like this possible.
