South Carolina Federal Credit Union recently awarded three local students with $7,500 in scholarship prizes.

The students needed to submit a letter recommendation, written essay and transcript as part of their application. The essay required the students to explain how they personally live the credit union’s philosophy: “People Helping People.” These three students were chosen from 150 applicants.

One of the recipients was Megan Hunt, who received first place with $4,000. She is a senior at Clemson University, majoring in genetics and biochemistry.

The second place recipient was Antonio Rojas-Rodriguez. He received $2,500. He plans to attend College of Charleston this fall, as he just graduated from Stratford High School.

The third place winner was Samantha Bantly, who received $1,000 toward her education at Virginia Commonwealth University’s Art Foundation program this fall. She is a graduate of South Carolina Governor’s School for Arts & Humanities.

“In the financial industry, we strive to make strong investments, and I believe there is no greater asset than our students and next-generation leaders,” Scott Woods, president and CEO of South Carolina Federal, said. “Our credit union is committed to the success of our community and our annual scholarship competition is always a strong indicator that the future is bright.”
