STCU awards grants to students offering help

STCU has announced the winners of its annual Hundred Dollar Project that encourages teens to “start a movement, launch an innovation, brighten a life or change the world.”

The credit union will award students in Future Business Leaders of America, FBLA, at Cheney High School $1,500 to buy professional clothing and provide help with resumes and interview training for Cheney residents in need.

The students showed their dedication to this project by developing a detailed plan that included hosting a fun run that raised $358 toward their cause.

Other regional winners of STCU’s Hundred Dollar Project include:

Odessa High School’s FBLA, which will receive $2,500 to donate to the Odessa Healthcare Foundation

Columbia High School’s Jade Tunnell and Jackson Yale in Pasco, who collected 730 pairs of socks from drives at the high school, middle school, elementary school and public library. The two donated the socks to Community Action Collection, a shelter where socks are in high demand.

STCU selected the three teams from 20 teams around Washington and Idaho who submitted ideas to STCU.
