$5,000 in Scholarships Available From LAFCU

LANSING, Mich. — LAFCU is accepting applications for its 2019 Write to Educate Essay Contest that offers two $2,500 college scholarships to high school seniors and allows each winner to direct a $500 donation from LAFCU to a charity. Lansing State Journal is the community sponsor of the contest.

The scholarships can be used at Lansing Community College, Lansing, or at any Baker College campus in Michigan or online.

The entry deadline is March 31. Applications are available at www.lafcu.com/lafcumyway.

 “Education is powerful,” said Kelli Ellsworth Etchison, LAFCU chief marketing officer. “It can change a person’s life and strengthen a community. LAFCU offers the Write to Educate Essay Contest to encourage high school students to pursue higher education.

“In addition, the charity donation aspect of the contest helps students develop the leadership skills of recognizing social needs and having empathy for others.”

Winners will be chosen based on their one-page essay in response to the questions: Why is diversity important? How can you embrace and promote diversity in college?

The winning essays will be published in the Lansing State Journal.

A donation of $500 will be made to the charity of each winner's choice of one of the following organizations:

•     Shiawassee Hope
