Credit Union West Announces 2022 Scholarships Recipients

Credit Union West Supports Continuing Education.
Five Local High School Seniors Awarded $1,000 Scholarships

Credit Union West Awards $5,000 in Scholarships to Arizona High School Seniors


Credit Union West is excited to announce the recipients of the 2022 Scholarship Program. In total, the credit union is awarding five $1,000 scholarships to qualified Arizona high school seniors.

“Each year we provide scholarships for local high school students with the goal of lessening the financial burden they may face and helping them establish strong financial futures,” said Karen Roch, President and CEO of Credit Union West. “Congratulations to this year’s scholarship winners, who each show a strong commitment to furthering their education and improving their communities. We are proud to support their educational journey.” 


The scholarship award recipients include:

  • Carlos Zuniga – Mingus Union High School, Cottonwood
  • Dylan Walia – Mountain Ridge High School, Glendale
  • Jaidyn Jaacks – Sunrise Mountain High School, Peoria
  • Jenna Alcantar – Greenway High School, Phoenix
  • Callie Oryall – Prescott High School, Prescott, JROTC

The five winners were chosen based on their academic achievement, community service and overall character. Applicants were also asked to write an essay about a time when they learned an important money management skill and how that changed the way they look at their finances.

As part of Credit Union West’s legacy of serving military personnel, one of the scholarships has been awarded to a student who participated in their school’s Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC).

Each scholarship supports an Arizona high school senior who plans to attend a trade school, two-year or four-year college after graduation. Students can use the scholarship to manage the many costs associated with pursuing higher education such as tuition, class fees, books, and other related expenses.

“Helping local students pursue their educational and financial goals is at the heart of how we support our communities,” said Roch. “Our Scholarship Program is a highlight of our community giving efforts and we look forward to continuing it in future years.”

As a leading credit union in Arizona, Credit Union West provides financial education and services to help Arizonans achieve their goals. Anyone interested in learning more can visit cuwest.org/savingmoney for expert money-saving tips and tools to help you reach your financial goals.
