Coatesville High School graduate Samantha Ferguson, a student at Millersville University, has been awarded a $1,500 scholarship from Benchmark Federal Credit Union.
All scholarship applicants wrote essays on an experience from their life and how it has influenced their financial development/well-being. The essays were then judged by an independent panel of community and education leaders.
“For almost a decade, we have been thrilled to present scholarship checks to students across the region as they pursue their dreams,” said David LaSala, Benchmark President and CEO. “Benchmark is committed to supporting financial success strategies throughout our Chester County community.”
As the only federal credit union to serve Chester County exclusively, Benchmark also provides a free, award-winning financial literacy curriculum in more than 59 public schools across Chester County.
