WILLIAMSPORT - Horizon Federal Credit Union announces its 2012 scholarship recipients.
The annual scholarship program rewards the writing talent and academic endeavors of credit union members who are graduating from high school and entering four-year or two-year undergraduate degrees or vocational studies.
"We are delighted to support these talented individuals in achieving their educational goals," said Traci Donahue, CEO of Horizon. "Giving back to our young members through our credit union scholarship is just one example of Horizon FCU's 'People helping people' philosophy."

"We have seen impressive academic achievements in all of those who have entered our scholarship competition since its inception. It is refreshing to see those who are eager to continue their educations and to reach high," said Donahue.
