SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Coosa Pines Federal Credit Union has invested in the community’s future by granting $24,000 in scholarships to 2024 high school graduates.

The scholarships, awarded to 24 recipients attending college or trade school in the fall, provide each student with $1,000 to support their educational pursuits.

“At Coosa Pines, we are not just a financial institution but a community partner,” said CEO Don Carden. “We are dedicated to enhancing the communities we serve by providing scholarships to support outstanding students in pursuing their educational aspirations. These scholarships are a testament to our belief in the power of education and our commitment to fostering personal and civic responsibility.”

The recipients, from 11 different high schools, demonstrated academic excellence and an understanding of the credit union’s values of personal and civic responsibility.

For example, in scholarship recipient Maya Vincent’s essay, the Childersburg High School graduate eloquently expressed the credit union’s “people helping people” philosophy.

“Acts of kindness can inspire others to do the same, creating a chain reaction of goodness,” Vincent wrote. “It’s all about spreading love and making a difference, one person at a time!”
