Alex Dattilio of Hagerstown is the recipient of one of 14 scholarships awarded to Maryland state employees and their immediate family members by SECU, Maryland’s largest financial cooperative.

The scholarship program represents part of the credit union’s continuing commitment and support for both financial education and the communities it serves.

Datillio  will attend the University of Maryland in College Park in the fall.

SECU established its scholarship program seven years ago. In that time, it has awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships. Participating students wrote a 500-to 750-word essay discussing how young adults are learning to be financially responsible in a technologically evolving environment, and how those new technologies — such as EMV chips, Google Wallet, Near Field Communications and others — are changing their own purchasing habits.
