WESTconsin Credit Union recently awarded ten $1,000 scholarships to area high school seniors as part of the WESTconsin Scholarship Program. Recipients were selected based on a variety of criteria including community and school involvement, academic progress, financial need, career plans and goals.

Isabelle Barr, River Falls High School graduate, was the River Falls area scholarship recipient. Barr will use the money to help fund her post-secondary education plans at the Augsburg University, where she will study social work and Spanish.

For over 20 years, WESTconsin has distributed over $250,000 to help support the higher education goals of area students. Scholarships are awarded annually to youth members from communities served by WESTconsin offices.
