Bulldog credit union grants scholarships

Two Bulldog Federal Credit Union members, Hope Elizabeth Kemmerer of Smithsburg High School and Brett Tyler Guessford of Williamsport High School, have been awarded $1,000 scholarships.

The announcement was made by David Barrett, Credit Union president and chairman of the scholarship selection committee.

An avid reader, Link Crew leader and National Honor Society member, Kemmerer will attend Frostburg State University and plans to major in elementary education. Thanks to an influential second-grade teacher, she dreams of pursuing a career as an elementary school teacher. Graduating 12th in her class with a 4.19 GPA, Hope was active in Drama Club, Latin Club and Red Cross Club, and was vice president of Ruri‐Teen in her senior year.

With a passion to connect constituents to government, Guessford plans to major in political science/government at Georgetown University. A four-time Distinguished Honor Roll recipient, he graduated fourth in his class with a 4.21 GPA. He was an activist and organizer with Political Revolution PAC, and he served as an intern for the congressional office of John Delaney. His interests include coin and flag collecting, creating music and drawing.

Bulldog Federal Credit Union awards the scholarships each year to a male and female member who display high scholastic achievement and character, involvement in extracurricular and community activities and financial need.
