Three DeKalb County School District high school seniors are recipients of Georgia United Foundation scholarships.
Arabia Mountain High School seniors Lauren Dudley and Richard Gladney received $2,500 each, and Tucker High School senior Olivia Keeter received a $5,000 scholarship from Georgia United Foundation.
For 27 years, Georgia United Foundation has offered annual high school scholarships to members planning to attend college or technical school. Named for the credit union’s founder and notable board members, the program offers an opportunity for students to showcase their scholastic achievements and creativity through a video competition.
Dudley plans to attend Mercer University and study finance. “I’m extremely thankful for the Georgia United Foundation T. Randall Dennis Scholarship. This scholarship will aid me in paying for needed expenses at Mercer University.”
Gladney plans to attend Morehouse College and study biomedical engineering. “This scholarship is a blessing to an inspiring Biomedical Engineer.”
Keeter plans to attend Mississippi State and study environmental engineering. “Thank you Georgia United Credit Union for your generous scholarship and investment toward my education. This opportunity will allow me to continue my education and assist me in my goal of helping to provide and conserve water resources for today’s communities and future generations without the worry of personal debt. Thank you for believing and investing in me!”
