Two Alamance Community College students have received “People Helping People” scholarships from the NC State Employees Credit Union (SECU). The students were presented with scholarships worth $5,000 each over a two-year period.

Leigh Dillon is a student studying toward an associate degree in Medical Office Administration; Gina Burk is pursuing her degree in Culinary Arts.

Qualifications for the SECU scholarship include documented need, grade point average, community service, and commitment to ACC for two years. The $5,000 scholarships are given to two students from each of the state’s 58 community colleges to support two years of schooling. The funding comes from SECU members who contribute a $1 service fee per month on their checking accounts.
