Community note: Scholarship winners

Scholarship winners

DuPont Community Credit Union has announced winners of its annual scholarship contest.

Applicants were asked to write a 750-1,000 word essay about what they see as the greatest financial challenge people will face in the next five years and the role a credit union can play in helping members and the community prepare for this challenge.

This year’s recipients are: Rachel Tischler of Strasburg High School, EmilyAnn Burr of Central High School and Elizabeth Funkhouser of Stonewall Jackson High School.

Over the last 20 years, DCCU has awarded nearly $250,000 in scholarship funds.
