Bowater Employees CU Awards $2,000 College Scholarship

Cleveland, TN - Mollie Farris of Cleveland, Tennessee, has been selected as this year’s recipient of Bowater Credit Union’s Annual $2,000 College Scholarship. In order to receive this scholarship, Mollie competed against many other students who were evaluated based on grades, school activities, civic activities and an essay on the importance of credit unions in the lives of young adults.

Mollie recently graduated from Walker Valley High School and will soon be entering the nursing program at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee. “We are proud to have Mollie representing Bowater Credit Union and her community,” said Kim Gunter, VP Marketing of Bowater Credit Union.

Mollie’s winning essay stated that “Credit Unions serve as great supporters in teaching both the youth and the more established people of society about financial security. . . A strong sense of community comes with membership of a credit union.”

To apply for Bowater Credit Union’s Annual $2,000 College Scholarship you must be a graduating senior, and must be a member of the credit union before March 1 of the year you graduate.  Applications are available online at https://bowaterecu.org/youth-services/.
