2016 Enola M. Fee Scholarship Winner
Metairie, LA – May 19, 2016 – Greater New Orleans Federal Credit Union (GNO FCU) has selected Sierra Torres as the recipient of their 6th Annual $1,000 Enola M. Fee Scholarship Award.
The program was designed to promote the credit union philosophy, “Not for Profit, Not for Charity, but for Service,” and foster volunteerism in high school seniors. The Enola M. Fee Scholarship was established in honor of a distinguished board member who devoted many years of volunteer service to GNO FCU. The scholarship is given annually to a qualified graduating high school student to assist in the expenses for college.
This year’s winner, Sierra Torres, is a NOCCA graduate. She is an amazing student who is
passionate about her career in food sustainability and efforts to grow food in city environments where the food can be utilized in a “slow” manner from farm to table. We are proud to award Sierra with the GNO scholarship and know that it will be put to good use in her ongoing studies.
Selection criteria included academic performance and essay presentation on the topic, “How Do You Hope to Deliver the Philosophy – not for profit, not for charity, but for service – Throughout your Life’s Journey and What this Philosophy Means to You”.
