Tobyhanna Federal Credit Union Announces Scholarship Winners

Three High School Seniors Awarded John Paul Ruggiero Scholarship
Tobyhanna Federal Credit Union awarded three local high
school seniors a John Paul Ruggiero Scholarship. The winners are: Abigail
Pipcho of Abington Heights High School (3rd), Margaret Dodgson of Scranton
Preparatory High School (2nd), and Alexandria Soller of James M. Coughlin High
School (1st).

The placements of the three scholarship finalists were announced at the credit
union’s 60th Annual Meeting which was held on Tuesday, April 22, 2014. The
competition awards three scholarships totaling $4,500 to members who are local
high school graduating seniors with plans to attend a 2 or 4 year accredited postsecondary
institution.

A total of 11 applications were received, evaluated, and graded by the credit
union’s Scholarship Committee. Each application asks the students to provide
information on academic achievement, extracurricular activities, demonstrated
need, and community involvement. Along with the completed application, each
student must submit an essay or other project based on a predetermined topic
relating to the services and benefits of a credit union.

“We always receive applications from some of the brightest and most ambitious
young students in this area, which makes the job of our Scholarship Committee
that much tougher,” said Sean Jelen, CEO. “We are proud to offer this
scholarship to our members and we congratulate this year’s winners on their
great accomplishments.”

For more information about the John Paul Ruggiero Scholarship, please contact
the credit union. New applications for the 2015 graduating seniors will be
available in October 2014 on the TobyFCU website and in its branches.
