2015 Scholarships and Awards
MLCU Annual Arlene Colombini Scholarship
Our Annual Arelene Colombini Scholarship is named in honor of the MLCU’s original founding member, Arlene Colombini. All Lake and Mendocino County graduating high school seniors and college students who are currently enrolled full time (12 units minimum) at Yuba College (Clearlake Campus), Mendocino College, or College of the Redwoods (Fort Bragg Campus) with a 3.0 GPA or higher are invited to apply. Scholarship winners will be announced at each school's senior awards night, followed by a press release in all local papers.
MLCU Student Achievement Awards
The Mendo Lake Credit Union Achievement Awards program honors outstanding high school seniors whose scholastic attainment, sense of responsibility, community service, and evidence of leadership give promise of success and service to society. Certificates are awarded to students who have demonstrated excellence in a specific study area. Two students, who represent the highest level of attainment overall, are awarded an honorarium in the amount of $50. Students are chosen by their high school staff, and MLCU presents awards at the school's Senior Awards Night.
