Local students win Point Breeze scholarships

Point Breeze Credit Union has awarded scholarships to 15 local high school seniors as a part of its 12th annual scholarship program. Each student will receive $1,500 towards his or her higher education. Westminster winners are Pieter Heyn, who will be attending Clarkson University; and Kelly Sprangel, who will be attending Ohio State University .

Students submitted applications explaining their involvement in high school and their community, as well as an essay describing their future goals and how their selected major will help them achieve these goals. They were also asked to create a hypothetical budget on a $40,000 annual salary. To be eligible, students needed to be current owners, joint owners or named on a custodial account in good standing with Point Breeze Credit Union. The winners were selected by a scholarship committee comprised of Point Breeze Credit Union executives and board members.
