A Mountain Ridge High School student was among those receiving scholarships from Credit Union West.
In total, the credit union awarded five $1,000 scholarships to qualified Arizona high school seniors.
The recipients included Dylan Walia of Mountain Ridge.
“Each year we provide scholarships for local high school students with the goal of supporting education-based expenses and helping them establish strong financial futures,” said Karen Roch, Credit Union West president and CEO, shared in a statement. “Congratulations to this year’s scholarship winners, who each show a strong commitment to furthering their education and improving their communities.”
The five winners were chosen based on their academic achievement, involvement in the community and overall character. Applicants were also asked to write an essay about a time when they learned an important money management skill and how that changed the way they look at their finances.
