To get the inside scoop in this annual investment, we invited Community Choice's Foundation Development Coordinator Steven Hernandez for a quick chat. Steven provided us with the backstory on why his credit union embarks on this philanthropic event each year, along with what they look for in qualified scholarship candidates, what these funds mean to the recipients, what it says about credit unions, and anecdotes of previous scholarship winners.
Most importantly, Steven connects the dots on how these scholarships have impacted the state of Michigan's economy. Check it out and let us know your thoughts.
