Calling High School Seniors: The John Aman Memorial Scholarship Application is Open
February 12, 2018
Unison is excited to announce that the application for the 2018 John Aman Memorial Scholarship is now available! Five high school seniors will be awarded $2,000 each in recognition of the active roles they play in their communities and their efforts in volunteerism.
“As a credit union, Unison is dedicated to the mantra of ‘people helping people’ and strives to support community members and their causes,” said Mark Hietpas, Unison Credit Union president and CEO. “The John Aman Memorial Scholarship serves as an annual reminder of the importance of volunteerism and gives us the opportunity to recognize local students who are dedicated to community service and embody that mission.”
The scholarship is awarded each year in honor of John Aman, Unison Credit Union’s first CEO, who was hired in 1970. Aman was passionately committed to both the credit union industry and his community, and was well known for his volunteering and service efforts.
New this year, students have the chance to include a multimedia submission, such as a video or slideshow, instead of a written essay. Applicants can also download and submit the application online, in addition to mail, email, and in-person delivery options. Check out the application, its requirements, and the full list of eligibility criteria here.
“We understand that while entering college is a very exciting time in a person’s life, it can also be a very stressful one financially,” Hietpas continued. “Unison is dedicated to helping our members be financially successful throughout every stage of their lives.”
Applications are due no later than noon on Saturday, March 17, 2018 to Cindi Witt. Completed packets can be mailed or delivered in-person to: Unison Credit Union, Attn: Cindi Witt, 1616 Crooks Avenue, Kaukauna, WI 54130.
