Borwig, Cravens, Henson, and Rudic each awarded $1,000

            Frankfort, KY- The Commonwealth Credit Union Scholarship Committee has selected four outstanding high school graduates as the 2017 Commonwealth Credit Union Scholarship recipients.

The 2017 winners: Blake Borwig, a recent graduate of Anderson County High School who will be attending Georgetown College this fall; Emma Cravens, a 2017 graduate of Southwestern High School who plans to attend Western Kentucky University; Josiah Henson, a recent graduate of Jackson City High School who will be a student at the University of Kentucky in the fall; and Tamara Rudic, a 2017 graduate of Western Hills High School who will continue her education at Brown University.

“These young adults distinguished themselves as embodying our purpose of bettering lives though leadership within their school, academic achievement, and contributions to their community,” said Karen Harbin, Commonwealth Credit Union President/CEO.

Each year, Commonwealth Credit Union offers four $1,000 scholarships to graduating high school seniors who are credit union members. Recipients are chosen through an application process that is evaluated based on community involvement, extracurricular activities, academic achievement, short answer essay, and letters of recommendation. The 2018 Commonwealth Credit Union Scholarship Application will be available in January.
