NorState FCU Awards Eight Scholarships Instead of Six

Every year, NorState FCU awards six $1,000 scholarships to graduating high school seniors. After reading this year’s applications, however, six scholarships didn’t seem like enough.

“This year, due to the outstanding caliber of all applicants, NorState FCU has increased its awarded scholarships from six to eight $1,000 scholarships,” said Susan G. Whitehead, CEO and President of NorState FCU. “I am so very proud of the students in our field of membership and their drive to be successful. They are our future.”

To be considered for a scholarship, students were required to meet the following criteria:

  • Active NorState FCU member
  • Accepted to an institution of higher education
  • Attends a high school in Aroostook or Northern Penobscot County

Along with a short essay, applicants also needed to submit a summary of any community service projects they were involved with.

“NorState FCU’s philosophy of People Helping People defines who we are as an organization and as employees, added Whitehead. “That is why we put an emphasis on volunteerism when considering applications for our scholarship awards.”

Scholarships were awarded to the following graduates:

  • Mason Chasse (Madawaska High School)
  • Clark Condon (Ashland High School)
  • Matthew Hedrich (Presque Isle High School)
  • Isabelle Lavoie (Madawaska High School)
  • Emmanuel Morin (Madawaska High School)
  • Cassidy Page (Caribou High School)
  • Madison Ringuette (Madawaska High School)
  • Alexander White (Presque Isle High School)

Congratulations to the 2022 scholarship recipients.
