Haley Donaldson, Makenzie Dougherty and Jacqueline Janorschke have been named the recipients of the Joseph M. Carrigan Memorial Scholarship sponsored by River Cities Community Credit Union. Each of these recipients will receive $1000 towards their college education. This is the twentieth year for the scholarship. River Cities has given over $30,000 in scholarships over the past twenty years.
Joe Carrigan was well known for his involvement in the community. He was instrumental in the formation of River Cities Community Credit Union, formerly known as McCormick Midwest Employees Credit Union, and it is an honor to award scholarships in his memory. A number of factors are taken into consideration in the choice of the recipients: involvement in school, grades, citizenship, involvement in the community and an essay on credit unions. All applicants, either themselves or their parents, must be a member of the credit union. In the essay, applicants have a chance to tell how the credit union has benefited either themselves or their families.

She has been active in Future Farmers of America and Future Business Leaders of America and Softball, for which she’s received All-District, All-State and Team MVP honors throughout her four years of high school.

Encourages Youth to Get Financially Fit
Financial literacy is a crucial life skill for young people, but it’s one that too few are learning.
That’s why in April, River Cities Community Credit Union is focusing on helping youth become more financially fit. For the entire month, River Cities Community Credit Union will be hosting events that will help local youth strengthen their money skills and pump up their savings.
“Youth fitness has become a national priority, with an emphasis on exercise and proper nutrition,” said River Cities Community Credit Union CEO Bev McConaughey, “But with all of the hurdles facing young people in the future, historic levels of student debt, we believe financial fitness is just as important.”
The theme of the month-long event is Credit Union Strong. Like all credit unions, McConaughey said, River Cities Community Credit Union is a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative.
“Member education and concern for the community are part of the foundational principles of our business structure,” McConaughey said. “Passing along basic money skills to the next generation so that these kids might have a brighter future embodies both those principles—and that’s what we believe it means to be credit union strong.”
Here are some of the upcoming events that all members of the public are invited to participate in at River Cities Community Credit Union:
On Thursday, April 21st from 3:30-5:00, River Cities will have a Youth Party at 513 Commercial. Games and snacks follow the “Credit Union Strong” theme. There will be gifts for depositors and a chance for each depositor to win $100 in a national drawing and a chance to win River Cities’ bag full of fun physical fitness items. A coloring contest for ages 0-12 finishes up the month with entries due by April 29th. River Cities Community Credit Union wants youth to be physically and financially strong!
