Abri Credit Union's Two $1,000 College Scholarship Winners

The Abri Credit Union scholarship program awards a graduating high school senior and an existing higher education student a $1,000 college scholarship to use towards their college tuition. ACU is excited to announce Alisha Tuning and Gary Gomez as the two winners for the $1,000 Abri college scholarship. Scholarship applicants were required to submit a 500 word essay or a 60-second video/commercial that conveyed a clear, clever message about personal finance.

Her winning video discusses the benefits of young people taking a personal financial course.
