CCC Students Awarded State Employees’ Credit Union Scholarships

Shelby, NC — The North Carolina State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) Foundation recently presented a $2,500 scholarship to Cleveland Community College students Kelsey Jolley of Shelby and Regina Wilson of Dallas.

The scholarships are given to eligible full-time students based on SECU’s philosophy of “People Helping People,” with recipients chosen by their demonstrations of leadership, excellence of character, integrity and community involvement. The scholarships are funded solely by SECU’s membership and will be used to pay for tuition and other education expenses associated with the recipient’s education.

Jolley is the daughter of Mark and Tonia Jolley of Shelby and is a first-year student enrolled in the practical nursing program. A 2011 graduate of Crest High School, she was a member of the National Honor Society and Beta Club. She is a member of Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church and is actively involved in mission work throughout the community and in Guatemala and Honduras.

Wilson is a first year student in the surgical technology program at CCC. She is the daughter of Davey and Susie Garmon. Wilson has a daughter, Samantha, and is currently employed at Walmart Distribution Center.
