Each year, Compass presents two $4,000 scholarships to high school graduates, with one $1,000 Continuing Education Scholarship being awarded to a student already attending college or a trade school.

This year, Oswego High School seniors Julia May and Dane Richardson were selected as $4,000 graduating scholarship recipients.

May is set to attend the University at Buffalo in the fall where she will major in Biomedical Science.

Richardson is looking to attend either Ithaca College or Syracuse University with a focus in Sports Broadcasting and Communications.

The 2019 recipient of the Continuing Education Scholarship, in the amount of $1,000, is Jacqueline Greer.

Greer currently attends LeMoyne College where she is enrolled in the Bachelors of Science in Accounting and Masters of Science in Information Systems programs as part of the Madden School of Business.

The application process for this year’s scholarships began in early January with applications due in mid-April. The Compass Credit Union Scholarship Committee then had the tall order of sorting through more than 25 applicants, all of which were Compass members, to determine this year’s recipients.
