These students are the leaders of tomorrow and we are happy to assist them in reaching their educational goals.” said Tracy Miller, CEO of Kellogg Community Credit Union. “In addition, I’d like to congratulate all 2020 graduates on their achievements and hard work. While your senior year did not end like you might have expected, please know that we are all proud of you and what you’ve accomplished.”

The Kellogg Community Credit Union College Scholarship Program was developed to help local high school graduates reach their career goals. 2020 marks the thirty-second year of KCCU’s scholarship program, and since its inception they have awarded roughly $160,000 to local students.
