Greater New Orleans Federal Credit Union (GNO FCU) selected Charles Wellington recipient of the 9th Annual $1,000 Enola M. Fee Scholarship Award. Their scholarship 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 the New Orleans community as well as 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, Charles Wellington, is graduating from Holy Cross with a 5.2 GPA. He is an amazing individual who truly embodies the credit union philosophy of “Not for Profit, not for Charity, but for Service”. Charles has worked with several organizations in the community over the years and receives joy from helping those most in need. Charles will stay in New Orleans and attend Tulane University in the fall and plans to continue his community outreach well into the future.
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”.
