Xceed Financial Credit Union is deeply committed to financial education. From offering free financial tutorials, calculators and blog posts, as well as seminars and webinars so their members can achieve financial fitness, Xceed’s services extend far beyond being a full-service, federally chartered not-for-profit workplace credit union. But their support for education doesn’t stop there.
Each year, Xceed offers $1,000 scholarships to deserving young members who are preparing for college through the Romeo Doty Scholarship Program. Named for a long-time Board member, Romeo Doty, who dreamed of making higher education accessible for all students, the program has awarded nearly $150,000 in scholarship money to students nationwide since its inception.
“Each of our scholarship winners has an impressive record of achievement and service, and we’re proud to support them as they embark on the next chapter in their academic lives,” said Xceed Financial President and Chief Executive Teresa Freeborn. Honorees are chosen every year by the Credit Union’s scholarship committee, who consider information submitted such as GPA, extracurricular activities within the student’s school and community and essay responses to questions such as, “What can a Credit Union do to remain competitive in an environment where technology is rapidly evolving?” Here’s to another generation of thoughtful, influential leaders—thanks to Xceed Financial Credit Union.
