Nymeo Federal Credit Union awarded two area high school seniors each with a Nymeo Believe & Achieve College Scholarship. Alena Surgueev, from Frederick High School, and Nyah Stewart, from Gov. Thomas Johnson High School, were this year’s recipients. Both students received a $1,500 scholarship from Nymeo. A committee of judges based the winners on their essays, academic accomplishments and participation in school and community activities.
Additionally, Nymeo presented Sara Buckley, a Linganore High School senior, with a college scholarship of $1,000 from the Credit Union Foundation of Maryland and the District of Columbia Inc. She was one of 12 high school credit union members that received this scholarship.
“Each year, we receive outstanding applications from high school seniors throughout Frederick and Montgomery counties,” said Vicki Johnston, president and CEO of Nymeo. “It’s a very competitive process, and the judges have a difficult time choosing just two winners amongst a pool of talented students. Thank you to those who applied to our scholarship and to the CU Foundation of Maryland and the District of Columbia Scholarship.”
This is the fifth year the credit union has awarded this scholarship. Nymeo is also a Frederick County Public Schools Business Partner, sponsors the Millionaire’s Club and Financial Reality Fair as well as many other school-based programs and projects.
