Direct Federal Credit Union names Norwood High School students as scholarship recipient
The credit union awards the $3,000 scholarship to Ryan Gallagher
The scholarship was presented at the Credit Union in June. Representing Direct Federal was Dave Walsh, Director of Community Relations. Gallagher was presented a $3,000 scholarship.
Gallagher was selected based on his personal essay that demonstrated the use of Direct Federal values (drive, integrity, resilience, engagement, competence and teamwork) in his everyday life.
Gallagher will attend Curry College in the fall.
Dave Walsh, Director of Community Relations at Direct Federal Credit Union, said, "It was a pleasure to recognize Ryan with our Values in Practice Scholarship. His personal story is inspiring and I am confident he will achieve every goal he sets out to accomplish."
Walsh will look to extend Direct Federal's relationships with schools in Norfolk County through an expanded scholarship program and the introduction of a financial literacy program.
