The Taylorville Community Credit Union announced two Taylorville high school seniors as the winners of two 1,000 dollar scholarships to help continue their education.
TCCU President Will Perkins explains how the scholarship program benefits the community and the recipients.
The Taylorville seniors, Albina Letnika and Emily Morrison, were presented the award earlier this month by Perkins, and Perkins was struck by the high quality of each winner.
Perkins said the Credit Union was looking to find a way to help the local community, and by allowing the public to buy votes from local stores, Perkins feels proud to make a difference in the Taylorville community.
