FAYETTEVILLE, NC (6/3/14) — Several prizes were rewarded to high school seniors in Cumberland County last month during the Beasley Broadcast Group’s “Driven 2 Excel” program, including $5,000 in scholarships by Fort Bragg Federal Credit Union.
“Driven to Excel” is a community enhancement campaign that recognizes academic excellence and impeccable attendance records of high school seniors in the 2013-14 school year. During the qualification periods, students were to have a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher and no more than five absences to qualify for the program.
This year, there were 564 graduating seniors who qualified for the “Driven 2 Excel” program. The qualifiers’ names were all thrown into a drawing for the opportunity to win the grand prize of a 2014 Toyota Scion from Rick Hendrick Toyota in Fayetteville. Second- and third-place prizes, sponsored by Fort Bragg Federal Credit Union, consisted of a $3,000 scholarship and a $2,000 scholarship. Additional prizes were also put into the drawing.

“We were very thankful that Fort Bragg Federal Credit Union was able to give away the scholarships to these successful students,” said Fort Bragg FCU President/CEO David G. Elliot. “It was so rewarding to see how happy and excited they were when they won.”
