“The Credit Union of Colorado Foundation is proud to celebrate our ninth year of providing financial support to college students from communities throughout Colorado,” says Kamela Pancroft, board chair of the Credit Union of Colorado Foundation. “We want every Coloradan to be able to achieve their dreams – and continuing education is a key factor to becoming a lifelong learner. The quality of students who apply for our scholarships is outstanding. Each applicant showcases their personal commitment to volunteerism and the goals they’ve set to impact society and their community. By investing in these students, we are helping perpetuate a bright future!”
