    Twenty-five Northeast Credit Union student-members have been selected as recipients of Northeast Credit Union’s (NECU) 2019 Scholarship Awards. $40,000 in scholarships were awarded to student-members in New Hampshire and Southern Maine, who displayed exceptional leadership among their peers, and demonstrated a commitment to academics and to their communities.
    “Furthering my education is important to me because it will provide me with the opportunity to follow my dream of becoming a Pediatric Oncology Nurse Practitioner,” said Allison Theriault, an NECU scholarship recipient. “Not everyone is able to continue their education, so I feel incredibly grateful that I am. Every year, the cost of education increases, making it extremely difficult to obtain a degree. This generous scholarship will go directly towards my tuition at Endicott College, and I am so thankful that Northeast Credit Union has recognized my hard work.”
    NECU promotes the simple message, Love your Community (LYC), in an effort to encourage others to be active members in the communities they live and work in. When asked what it means to Love Your Community, scholarship recipient Nickolas Heysler replied, “I believe in sharing the love my community has shown me, and paying it forward to others. Through the various clubs I’ve participated in, I’ve had many opportunities to give back to my community. Northeast Credit Union is part of our very generous and caring community here in the Mount Washington Valley. It means a lot to me that my credit union gives back to the students and members in our community.”

    “There’s no better feeling than helping the student-members of our Northeast Credit Union family reach their goals,” said Northeast Credit Union’s President and CEO Timothy J. Collia. “Each year, it becomes more and more difficult for us to choose the recipients from such a large pool of talented and deserving young people. We are eager to award these scholarships to our student-members and are excited to see their success in their future endeavors.”
