Focusing on Our Future

HMECU was pleased to once again offer the annual "Focusing on Our Future" Scholarship awards! The 4th year of this member driven initiative looked to provide our young members with continued financial support for post-secondary education costs and promote co-operative values.

HMECU prides itself on exemplifying the co-operative principles as demonstrated by our values. This year students were required to submit a 750-word essay describing how their experiences with community, volunteering, leadership, and educational goals demonstrate these values.

Thank you to all of our student members who submitted an essay for the 2017 scholarship! As a reminder, if you did not win a scholarship this year, you are still eligible to submit another essay for the scholarship next year.

And the Winners are...

1st Prize - Alexa Kovacs - $2,000 Charlie Collura Student Leadership Award winner

2nd Prize - Alyssa Vernon - $1,000 winner

3rd Prize - Benjamin Krbavac - $500 winner

Draw winner - Timothy Hewitson - $250 Staples gift card

Pictures coming soon!

Congratulations to all of our 2017 "Focusing on Our Future" Scholarship winners! All the best in your upcoming school year!
