The Georgia Federal Credit Union (GFCU) has announced the winners of their 2010 Archbishop John F. Donoghue scholarships, created in honor of the now retired archbishop who petitioned to add credit union benefits to members of the Archdiocese of Atlanta.
This is the third year GFCU has awarded scholarships to Catholic high school students. Selection was based on academic accomplishments, leadership and participation in both school and community activities, and an essay competition.
This year’s top winner was Katherine Myers, of St. Pius X High School, Atlanta, who received $1,500. A second place award of $1,000 was given to Jennifer Underhill of Blessed Trinity High School, Roswell.
GFCU serves employees and family members of over 450 companies, the University of Georgia, the Atlanta Archdiocese and 10 county school systems.
