JROTC Scholarships Awarded


For the last several years, Credit Union West has partnered with the Peoria Chamber of Commerce in awarding scholarship funds to the Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) programs at Peoria and Cactus high schools. 

Each year, two deserving students are chosen to receive scholarships of $2,000 each. This year's recipients are Cadet Callie Folker from Cactus High School and Cadet Makenzie Spaulding from Peoria High School. Supporting students in their pursuit of higher education is just one way Credit Union West invests in the community and the future of the next generation.

"Supporting the military and education are an important part of how we enhance the lives of those in the communities we serve," said Scott Grundy, VP, Chief Information Officer at Credit Union West. "We are proud to help these incredible and deserving students succeed as they pursue their careers."
