At the close of the 2017 school year, LBS Financial Credit Union awarded scholarships to 36 students in Long Beach, Lakewood, Cerritos, and surrounding communities.

Each year, LBS Financial encourages local area high schools, adult schools, and community colleges to participate in their scholarship program by selecting a deserving student to receive an award.  This year, 32 high school, 2 college, and 2 adult school students were awarded scholarships for up to $500. The credit union works directly with each school to select the recipient and present a plaque with the check to the student.

The credit union also offers a $1,000 scholarship each year. Any LBS Financial member in their final year of high school or first three years of college is eligible to apply. One winner is selected for the $1,000 scholarship by a credit union employee committee. Jennifer Tang of Norwalk, California is the 2017 LBS Financial Credit Union Scholarship winner. She graduated from Norwalk High School in June and will be attending University of California, Los Angeles to study pre-medicine starting in fall 2017.

Throughout May and June 2017, many of the scholarships were presented by LBS Financial staff, along with a plaque, to students at their school’s award ceremony.
