Westerra member in Afghanistan donates 2K for scholarships
DENVER (4/30/10)--While Westerra CU again is offering graduating high school seniors $1,000 scholarships to attend a technical school, college or university, two extra scholarships--for a total of 17--were added this year due to the generosity of Westerra member Steve Willey, who resides overseas. When he learned about the Westerra college scholarship program, Willey sent an e-mail to the credit union from his base in Afghanistan: “Is there any way I can contribute to the scholarship fund?” he wrote. “It is a bad economy now, I know. My brother lost his job, my sister’s employer is bankrupt, and my other sister is working two part-time jobs--but education for the next generation is so important that I would like to help where I can. How can I donate [$2,000] to that fund?” The 17 scholarship winners will be announced in May by the $1.18 billion asset, Denver-based credit union.
