Need $2,500 for College? Apply for Ruby Sue Clifton Scholarship by March 27

A local credit union is offering students a chance to win one of six $2,500 scholarships for college.

To be eligible, students must be graduating seniors during the 2015–2016 school year and have at least one parent who has been a member of SMART Financial Credit Union (formerly First Educators) for more than six months.
