Georgia United Credit Union recently announced the winners of their 23rd Annual Scholarship Competition. Since its inception, nearly $200,000 has been awarded to high school seniors.
In 2017, a total of $27,500 was awarded to four deserving high school seniors through scholarships named for the credit union’s founder, Vernon E Carne and notable board members Geraldine Tilson, Dorothy Dusenberry and Polly Hinde. Recipients were chosen based on a video competition with consideration given to academic accomplishments, leadership and participation in both school and community activities. Tanish Pradhan was the recipient of the Vernon E Carne Scholarship winning the $10,000 grand prize.
Pradhan is a senior at Parkview High School, graduating with a 4.0 GPA.
