The Thomas J. Williams Scholarship Program will award $1,000 to five members of the class of 2014.
Scholarship Program to Benefit Graduating High School Seniors
The program is named after Thomas Williams, who in 2012 retired after more than 30 years as the CEO and President of Sikorsky Credit Union. Each scholarship applicant will submit an essay, with the subject “How Sikorsky Credit Union helped me take charge of my money.” In order to be eligible, the student must be a high school graduate in the spring of 2014 and planning to attend an institute of higher learning in the fall of 2014. Also, the student must be a member of Sikorsky Credit Union on or before March 15, 2014. Membership can be started with just a $5 minimum opening deposit.
“We have given tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships over the years,” mentioned Diane Farrell, who is the vice-president of Marketing at Sikorsky Credit Union, “I am really looking forward to helping five more seniors get off to a terrific start.” Interested seniors may pick up an application at any of the Credit Union’s branch offices in Danbury, Milford, Seymour, Shelton or Stratford. Seniors at Oxford, Seymour and Stratford high schools may also visit the Credit Union branch inside their school. The application can be downloaded at www.sikorskycu.org/scholarship. The application deadline is April 30, 2014.
