Miranda O’Connor, Member Service Representative, (right) presented Nicole (left) with a check for $1,000 from the CFCU. Nicole was awarded our scholarship after receiving the most votes from the CFCU board members that reviewed the scholarship submissions.
Nicole’s essay contained the following statement: “Your credit tells someone what kind of person you are. If it is not good, you could be denied the opportunity to get the things you want in life like a home, car or the opportunity to get a job or send you child to college. Keeping up on payments and building your credit is essential for all you do.”
Dena Miller, CEO of the Craftmaster FCU believes Nicole’s statements are a great example of the importance of good financial choices. Credit Unions try to help their membership in all financial areas, such as rewarding improved credit scores by lowering interest rates on existing loans or providing information about increasing credit scores for our members. The Craftmaster FCU is open to Jeld-Wen employees, retirees and members of their immediate families.
Dena noted, “Congratulations to Nicole and the CFCU wishes you all success in college and your future endeavors.”
