Dunwoody senior wins scholarship

The Champion

A Dunwoody High School senior is one of five students from metro Atlanta to win a $5,000 scholarship from Delta Community Credit Union’s 19th annual college scholarship program.

Officials from the credit union said recipients were selected based on their academic achievement, community involvement, and an essay submission.

Maximus Stetter, a senior at Dunwoody High School who in a news release said he plans to attend the Georgia Institute of Technology to major in aerospace engineering, was the lone student from DeKalb to win a scholarship.

The essay topic was: As you embark on your future, how do you plan to use key financial tips learned along your journey to help you reach your goals?

“This year’s recipients embody our Credit Union’s values through their service to others as well as their interest in financial and social responsibility,” said Delta Community Credit Union CEO Hank Halter. “Their contest essays demonstrated a clear understanding of the role financial literacy can play in both personal and community prosperity. It is an honor to invest in each of them so they can pursue higher education, unlock their full potential and contribute to the future of their local communities.”

The news release states that Delta Community also supports community education through quarterly scholarships for students attending historically Black colleges and universities and by offering free classes and workshops to the public through its Delta Community Financial Education Center.
