SECU Foundation Continuing Education Scholarships Awarded

SHELBY, NC — The North Carolina State Employees’ Credit Union Foundation recently awarded Continuing Education Scholarships to five Cleveland Community College students. The scholarships were awarded to qualifying graduates of the Brown Emergency Training Center Firefighter Academy Training program.

In 2012, the SECU Foundation established a Continuing Education Scholarship Program to help remove financial barriers for students seeking to gain new and/or upgrade current job-related skills. Annually, the program provides a total of 580 scholarships – 10 scholarships at $750 each to all 58 community colleges. The target groups for the scholarship program are unemployment insurance claimants, unemployed & underemployed adults, military veterans, and members of the NC National Guard.

Graduates of Class 10 that were awarded a SECU Foundation Scholarship are Matthew Rollins, Joseph Cagle, Frankie Key, Andrew Peterson, and Paul Wessolleck.

Cleveland Community College is currently accepting applications for the next Firefighter Academy Training program that will begin in June 15, 2014.
