U1 established a scholarship program in 2004 to benefit high school student credit union members seeking a post-secondary education at an accredited college. The program was named the Glen R Kershner Memorial Scholarship after his death in 2011. Mr. Kershner was a close friend, mentor and colleague at U1. His life’s impact began through a scholarship which led to a passionate 44-year career and strong legacy marked by youth financial literacy, school outreach and scholarship programs. U1 honors Glen each year by awarding this member scholarship to dedicated students pursuing a college degree.

U1 congratulates Cody, Keenan and Benjamin on their achievements and wishes them the best on their future endeavors.
