Nicholas Place of Nashville recently received a Local Government Federal Credit Union Scholarship Award.

Place will use his scholarship to study at University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. He is one of 120 high school seniors and post-secondary students that will have extra money to apply toward their education at the university, community or technical college of their choice.

“This is the 16th consecutive year we have offered this scholarship,” said LGFCU President Maurice Smith. “It’s a real pleasure to reward these fine adults for not only getting top-notch grades, but also for finding the drive to take active roles in their communities. We applaud them and wish them luck in their studies and beyond.”

The LGFCU Scholarship Award recognizes a student’s high achievement in extracurricular activities, as well as academic excellence by their having maintained a grade point average of 3.0 or higher; financial need is also a consideration. For more information or to apply, call 919-755-0534 or visit
