As a credit union, MACU focuses heavily on serving the local community. "We understand the importance of education, but we also know the burden it can be for some families to pay for it," said Frank Beachnau, MACU President. "We are honored to help students achieve their academic goals as well as help alleviate the financial burden."
Available scholarships include the following:
In 2010, MACU established the Gail Walker Memorial Scholarship in memory of the former board member's years of service. It is awarded annually to a graduating high school senior, college freshman or sophomore in the amount of $1,000 to students with academic achievement.
The Leona Bruno Scholarship was established in 1994 in memory of the first manager of MACU. Annually, it is awarded to a graduating high school senior with scholastic achievement in the amount of $1,000.
