Burbank’s Media City Community Credit Union (MCCCU) awarded one $500 scholarship to UCLA-bound Burbank High School senior Brett Michael Camacho in May.
Camacho has a strong interest in Applied Sciences and plans to major in Engineering at UCLA, said MCCCU Business Development Rep Maricela Castillo.
Media City CCU announced the scholarship opportunity in March 2014 and awarded the funds on May 15. Students provided official academic transcripts and letters of recommendation from teachers, mentors or employers.
A team comprised of members of the MCCCU Board of Directors and management reviewed the applications and selected the top candidate based on academic achievement and contributions to the school and the community.
The scholarship assists a college-bound graduating senior with money towards tuition, books or other educational expenses.
“Media City CCU is delighted to be able to help our young members achieve their educational goals by helping them further their education with our annual scholarship award. Our dedication to the community starts with helping our young members achieve a brighter financial future,” commented Quang Dang, MCCCU Chairman of the Board.
