May 31, 2010

Two Bulldog Federal Credit Union members have been awarded $500 scholarships by Credit Union president and chairman of the Scholarship Selection Committee, David Barrett.

The winners, both honor club members graduating in the top 5 percent of their class are Williamsport High's Kelsy M. Rupp and North Hagerstown High's Zachary A. Gilbert.

A dance instructor and Interact Club member, Kelsy will graduate with a 4.06 grade-point average and plans to attend Radford University in Virginia in the fall.

Kelsy hopes to combine her lifelong passion for dance with her new found passion for psychology into a career that allows her to help children with disabilities through traditional and dance therapy.


In addition to spending more than 20 hours a week dancing, Kelsy has held positions of class treasurer and Link Crew president, and she is a member of the National Honor Society.

Having achieved the rank of Eagle Scout by the 10th grade, Zachary will graduate with a 4.25 grade-point average and plans to attend the University of Maryland, where he'll major in biology.

He hopes to continue on to either medical or dental school. Throughout his high school career, this student athlete played tennis and was a member of the Key Club.

He has played football and was a member of the Calculus Club.

A member of the National Honor Society, Zach received a Maryland Distinguished Scholar honorable mention in his senior year.

Bulldog Federal Credit Union awards the scholarships each year to a male and female member who display high scholastic achievement and character, involvement in extracurricular and community activities and financial need.
