Call Federal Credit Union has awarded $10,000 as part of the Alice S. Pearce Scholarship program. The program recognizes the contributions of Call Federal Credit Union’s first manager, Alice S. Pearce, who served from the credit union’s founding in 1962 until her retirement in 1991.

Four outstanding student members from the Metro Richmond area were recognized with $2,500 scholarships. Call Federal evaluated each applicant on four criteria: academic performance, extra-curricular leadership experience, community involvement, and a scholarship essay on how they plan to use their passion to impact the community.

Call Federal’s 2017 Alice S. Pearce Scholarship winners are:

  • Peyton Badura – James River High School
  • Abigail Killius – Mills E. Godwin High School
  • Samarth Kishor – Maggie C. Walker Governor’s School
  • Katie Robbins – University of Virginia

“Call Federal is passionate about making a positive impact on our members’ lives and the Greater Richmond community,” according to Call Federal’s Marketing Director and Scholarship Committee Chair, Cara Clements. She adds “We are proud to sponsor a scholarship program that recognizes students whose passion in life is to serve their community.”
