State Road student receives scholarship

RALEIGH — Local Government Federal Credit Union (LGFCU) announced James Osborne is the recipient of an LGFCU Scholarship Award.

Osborne will use the scholarship to study at Surry Community College and is one of 120 deserving high school seniors and post-secondary students that will have extra money to apply toward their education at the university, community or technical college of their choice.

“This is the 17th consecutive year we have offered this scholarship,” said LGFCU President Maurice Smith. “It’s a real pleasure to reward these fine adults for not only getting top-notch grades, but also for finding the drive to take active roles in their communities. We applaud them and wish them luck in their studies and beyond.”

The LGFCU Scholarship Award recognizes a student’s high achievement in extracurricular activities, as well as academic excellence by their having maintained a grade point average of 3.0 or higher; financial need is also a consideration. For more information, or to apply, call 919-755-0534 or visit
