Two students from the Triangle have won scholarships for demonstrating a commitment to building a stronger community. Michael Arthur McMullen Jr. from Durham and Louis Ray Harrison II from Apex are among 29 students who received a $1,000 scholarship from Self-Help Credit Union, a financial organization that works nationwide to create and protect ownership and economic opportunities for all.
The awards recognize proven leaders who have shown a commitment to community service and who strive to make a positive impact on the future.
McMullen plans to attend Shaw University Divinity School and Harrison plans to attend UNC-Chapel Hill, majoring in biology.
“I believe in the value of serving others and have worked to give back to my community as much as possible during my high school career,” Harrison says. “l have served as a peer tutor, bank volunteer and blood drive coordinator, but my most rewarding experience has been coaching special needs children in the Triangle area.”
