The Iowa Credit Union Foundation (ICUF) is excited to announce the four high school students and two college students who received the 2016 Warren A. Morrow Memorial Scholarship.

This year’s recipients, who are pursuing postsecondary education, are:

  • $1,500 to Lucas Thormann, a member of Dupaco Community Credit Union and a graduating senior at Dubuque Senior High School, Dubuque, IA
  • $1,000 to Emily Kay Sassman, a member of Veridian Credit Union and a graduating senior at Waverly Shell Rock High School, Waverly, IA

  • $1,000 to Abby Maples, a member of Collins Community Credit Union who currently attends Coe College

Applicants were required to complete an online entry form and answer an essay question in no more than 500 words, which was designed to encourage participants to learn about the credit union movement and its mission. This year’s question was:

What are the long term benefits education will have on your financial independence and well-being? How can your credit union play a role in your financial future?

The winners were selected out of more than 400 applicants based on originality, clarity and meaningful content, among other criteria.

“The mission of the Iowa Credit Union Foundation (ICUF) is to help Iowans build wealth, responsibility and independence,” said Jaimie Miller, Executive Director, ICUF. “We do this through critical programs such as the Warren A. Morrow Memorial Scholarship. This year’s awardees submitted inspiring essays on the benefits of higher education and the positive impact credit unions play in their financial lives. Congratulations to each of the finalists.”
