AHOSKIE – Adele Aycock Vice President/City Executive with Murfreesboro State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU), and Brian Horton, SECU Board Member, presented scholarship certificates to four deserving Roanoke-Chowan Community College (R-CCC) students.

Recipients of the Fall 2016 Continuing Education Scholarship program are Peggy Cary, Yvonne Cross, Hope Jones, and Janvelle Sutton.

Since the summer of 2013, the SECU has awarded 44 Continuing Education scholarships to local citizens in the Roanoke-Chowan area who were interested in returning to school for a short-term training course to advance in their respective professions. The SECU has invested over $33,000 in training local residents in the high demand field of healthcare.  Applications are currently being accepted to award six more scholarships for the spring 2017 semester.    

“We are very grateful to the State Employees’ Credit Union for their commitment and continued support to the Roanoke-Chowan area and our students,” said Jamie Burns, Coordinator Allied Health Program. “Many of the past scholarship recipients are currently working in their communities as certified nursing assistants or are returning to school to enroll in additional training opportunities.”
