The Edward G. Halliburton Scholarship
The Edward G. Halliburton scholarship honors long-time credit union volunteer and Director Emeritus Edward G. Halliburton, who served on the credit union’s board of directors for 47 years. Edward Halliburton sadly passed away in September 2015 at the age of 88.
Since the scholarship program started in 1993, the credit union has awarded $79,000 to further the higher education of 76 credit union members. Past Edward G. Halliburton Scholarship recipient Emily McDowell volunteers her time and talents serving on the credit union’s Supervisory and Scholarship Committees.
