The scholarships, which SECU awards annually to Maryland state employees who are SECU members or members of their immediate families, were presented to Casey Knell, of Forest Hill ($1,000), and Kristen Anne Lewis, of Joppa ($2,000).

Knell and Lewis are attending, respectively, the University of Delaware and Cedarville University in Ohio.

In its fifth year, the scholarship program is designed to make a positive contribution to the financial well-being of those SECU serves by encouraging members to plan for their financial futures.
