Anniston Mullinax of Rossville, Georgia has been selected as this year’s recipient of Bowater Credit Union’s Annual $2,000 College Scholarship. In order to receive this scholarship, Anniston competed against many other students who were evaluated based on grades, school activities, civic activities and an essay on the importance of credit unions in the lives of young adults.

Anniston recently graduated from Lake View Fort Oglethorp High School and will soon be studying Computer Science at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia. “We are proud to have Anniston representing Bowater Credit Union and her community at Mercer,” said Kim Gunter, VP Marketing of Bowater Credit Union.

Anniston’s winning essay stated that “Credit unions have immense benefits for their members, providing an exceptional beginning to their financial journey and ensuring a stable

foundation for their future, serving as the perfect decision for the youth of America.”

To apply for Bowater Credit Union’s Annual $2,000 College Scholarship you must be a graduating senior, and must be a member of the credit union before March 1 of the year you graduate.  Applications are available online at https://bowaterecu.org/youth-services/.
