If you’re a graduating high school senior, a returning college student, or a non-traditional student who may be returning to school after some time off, you’re eligible for one of the two $1,500 scholarships we’ll be awarding this year. The only requirement is that you’re an SFCU member in good standing. If your student isn’t already a member, now’s a great time to open an account.
As parents, we begin making sacrifices for our children the moment we find out we’re expecting; however, Mark and Teresa Stiltz never dreamt they’d have to make the ultimate sacrifice. Their son, and Spokane Federal member, Matthew died on November 12, 2012 while performing his duties as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. He died from wounds incurred by indirect fire in Zerok, Afghanistan. He is a true American Hero.
To honor our member Matthew, his sacrifice and his parents’ sacrifice, we are naming one of our two scholarships after Matthew – the Matthew Stiltz Scholarship – and making a donation to Operation Spokane Heroes to support military men and women and their families.
