Direct Federal Credit Union is pleased to announce Franklin High School seniors Katelyn d’Entremont and Nathaniel Kay as recipients of the Direct Federal Values in Practice Scholarship Program.
The scholarships were presented at the Franklin High School Scholarship night. Representing Direct Federal were Michael Ferreer, Vice President, Sales & Marketing; Jessica Glezellis, Business Development Manager; and Kristen Johnson, Marketing Manager. Each student was presented a $3,000 scholarship.
Kay and d’Entremont were selected based on personal essays that demonstrated use of Direct Federal values (drive, integrity, resilience, engagement, competence and teamwork) in their everyday lives.
Kay will attend Massachusetts Bay Community College in the fall.
d’Entremont will attend Halifax College in Nova Scotia to study Oceanography.
Jessica Glezellis, Business Development Manager of Direct Federal Credit Union, said, “It was a pleasure to recognize these two exemplary Franklin High School students. Their essays were well-crafted and inspiring and we have every confidence they will achieve every goal they set out to accomplish.”
Glezellis will look to extend Direct Federal’s relationships with schools in Norfolk County through an expanded scholarship program and the introduction of a financial literacy program.
