Acadia FCU is proud to announce its 2020 Acadia FCU Scholarship recipients. Cady Hebert, Zachery Chasse, and Neily Raymond will each receive $2,000. Recipients were selected based on a written essay, personal and academic achievements, grade point average, and financial need.
“We are so pleased to play a part in helping to finance these deserving students with the Acadia FCU Scholarship,” said Jill Bouchard Cairns, Acadia FCU’s Chief Relationship Officer. “We wish these three students the very best in their future endeavors. We are excited to hear all about their first year of college!”
