The ten students were rewarded for attending their First Year Introduction. The students were randomly chosen to receive $1,000 scholarships.

The money will be used for books, tuition, and supplies, whatever can assist these students to continue their education.

Spokane Teachers Credit Union is headquartered in Liberty Lake, WA and has over 230,000 members.

The FYI program was started to help students navigate the college lifestyle and answer any questions students may have.
