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.

In second place, Talour Ford (photo on left) was rewarded with a $3,000 scholarship and Tiana White (photo on right), in third place, received the $2,000 scholarship.

Talour Ford from Seventy-Five High School received the $3,000 scholarship and Tiana White of Pine Forest High School won the $2,000 scholarship. Taylor Sullivan from Gray’s Creek High School won the “Driven 2 Excel” 2014 Toyota Scion.

“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.”
