The winners of the 2022 Jack C. Mathews College Scholarship competition from Los Angeles Federal Credit Union were recently honored during a video conference.
The five deserving LAFCU members were each awarded $2,000, including four high school students attending college in the fall and a college student.
The recipients were honored by LAFCU’s President/CEO Richard Lie, who presided over the meeting also attended by LAFCU staff who reviewed the 77 scholarship applications.
Each application included an essay, the applicant’s extracurricular and community-service activities, letters of recommendation and grade transcripts.
Each winner was congratulated and complimented on their academic accomplishments. The recipients introduced themselves and shared what they planned to do with their scholarship. Since 2011, LAFCU has awarded over $100,000 in scholarships to 80 students and five teachers. The competition is named after the late Jack C. Mathews, who worked for the city of Los Angeles for 40 years and served 34 years as a volunteer on the LAFCU board.
