FRANKLIN, Mass. - June 27, 2018 - PRLog -- Direct Federal Credit Union (, a federally chartered and insured credit union serving the financial needs of the local community since 1953, is pleased to announce Nicole Carvalho of Franklin High School as a recipient of the Direct Federal Values in Practice Scholarship Program.  Carvalho joins two other students within Norfolk County who have received $3,000 each as scholarship recipients.

The scholarship was presented at the Franklin High School Scholarship Night. Representing Direct Federal was Dave Walsh, Director of Community Relations.
