United Consumers Credit Union has awarded $1,500 scholarships to area college students Samantha Feaker and Joshua Patrick, based on their outstanding academic achievements, strong work ethic, social and civic involvement and strong character.
“These young people not only demonstrate academic excellence, but have also proven their leadership skills by participating in a wide range of school and community activities,” states Jay Neathery, president of United Consumers Credit Union. “We look forward to learning about their future success.”
Feaker is currently enrolled at Missouri Western State University, majoring in vocal music education. She graduated from Truman High School and enjoys volunteering for the Special Olympics and litter clean-ups.
Patrick is currently enrolled at Crowder College, where he’s the third baseman for the winning Roughriders baseball team. He plans to continue his sports medicine degree at an East Coast college this fall.
