American 1 Credit Union Awards $12,000 in Scholarships to Local Students

Jackson, MI - June 24, 2020 - American 1 Credit Union awarded 12 graduating high school seniors from southern Michigan with $1,000 scholarships for their commitment to volunteerism in their community.  American 1 offered the awards through their annual Community Involvement Scholarship Program.

Each student applicant submitted an essay on the importance of volunteerism and how their involvement has impacted the community. The scholarships are funded through American 1’s Skip-a-Pay program, where credit union members can choose to skip one month’s loan payment for $25. A portion of the $25 fees are then used to fund the scholarship program.

The 2020 American 1 Community Involvement Scholarship winners are:

  • Savannah F. – Chelsea High School
  • Teagan H. – Michigan Center High School
  • Elena H. – Bloomfield Hills High School
  • Ava M. – Chelsea High School
  • Jason Z. – Salem High School
  • Emily C. – Chelsea High School
  • Reagan F. – Hanover Horton High School
  • Courtney F. – Addison High School
  • Charvik V. – Canton High School
  • Chloe C. – Salem High School (photo above) 
  • Lee B. – Manchester High School (photo right) 
  • Tayler T. – Bellevue High School
