“I feel excited and thankful to God that he gave a sign to those people to revise my paper and that they gave me the scholarship, I want to thank them so much to give me this opportunity and I’ll try not to waste or anything but to work hard. I am so grateful and giving God thanks so much for that because you know it is all because of God that it touched the heart of these people and we are so grateful for all these people that chose her and these other little children and the young ladies too right, so we know that we always have to put God in everything.”

“We believe in helping those we believe can exceed, we have one committee and we have one member of our Board of Directors, one from our Supervisor Committee and one from our Credit Committee, these volunteers Directors sits and review all the applications and based on need and merit they award to those they feel they can do the best with this assistance.  The assistance is one thousand dollars for the four years of high school so it one thousand times four is four thousand dollars per scholarship recipient and this year we gave three and we are very, very pleased and as the Credit Union grows so our profits and it grows so does our access and assistance increase as well.”
