Melissa Kanabrocki Memorial Scholarship

Our late colleague and dear friend, Melissa Kanabrocki, embodied the credit union philosophy of “people helping people” and had passion for improving the lives of those in the communities we serve. Gesa created the Melissa Kanabrocki Memorial Scholarship Fund to honor her legacy by helping students who work in our high school campus branches achieve their educational goals.
