Credit Union of Georgia Awards Scholarship to Marietta High School Student
Credit Union of Georgia was excited to surprise Darby Dryden, 2023 Graduate of Marietta High School at their West Cobb Branch with a $1,200 Scholarship earlier this week. Darby was selected as the annual scholarship winner from Credit Union of Georgia and the Marietta Schools Foundation based on her essay on Where #DoYouCU Making a Difference, based on the Credit Union hashtag, #DoYouCU. Darby’s essay on founding the Books for Africa Club at Marietta High School and in the last two years donating more than 14,000 books to children in Africa won the judges panel over. In addition to the essay, scholarship applicants were asked to submit two letters of recommendation, their transcript and their resume outlining extracurricular activities, community service and work experience.
“Credit Union of Georgia loves to give back – and we want to thank our students for giving back as well.” said Brian Albrecht, President/CEO of Credit Union of Georgia. “If we don’t have community, then we don’t have much at all. Our students are the future of our communities, so we want to make sure that we let them know that what they are doing is being noticed. Congratulations Darby!!”
