The scholarship will support the student’s academic journey at North Carolina Central University, one of the University of North Carolina System’s 16 universities.

The “People Helping People®” Scholarship recognizes the recipient’s community involvement, leadership, character, integrity, and scholastic achievement. The funds are provided over eight consecutive semesters for tuition and university-approved educational expenses.

High school scholarships awarded for the 2024 academic year represent a $4.4 million contribution toward the educational goals of college-bound students.

“The Foundation’s long-standing support of this scholarship program over the past 19 years has helped make college more affordable for thousands of students to pursue a quality education through the University of North Carolina System,” said SECU Foundation Executive Director Jama Campbell. “We hope that the award makes a lasting impact on the lives of every recipient as they prepare for a lifetime of professional and personal fulfillment. On behalf of SECU Foundation and SECU members, we offer Jada Lloyd our sincere congratulations and best wishes.”

SECU Foundation’s “People Helping People®” High School Scholarship program has provided over $75 million in scholarships for North Carolina high school seniors since 2005.

The SECU Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization funded by the contributions of SECU members, promotes local community development in North Carolina primarily through high-impact projects in the areas of housing, education, healthcare, and human services. Since 2004, SECU Foundation has made a collective financial commitment of over $258 million for initiatives to benefit North Carolinians statewide.
