St. Anne’s Credit Union remains committed to the future of the youth in the local SouthCoast community and for over 25 years has awarded more than $300,000 to local students through the St. Anne’s scholarship program. Recently, as a demonstration of this commitment, St. Anne’s Credit Union awarded the eighth annual Deacon Bernard G. Theroux Scholarship to a deserving student at St. Stanislaus School in Fall River. This year’s recipient is seventh-grader, Sophie DeOliveira.
This $500 scholarship is named in honor of Deacon Bernard G. Theroux, a recently departed Honorary Director of the Credit Union’s Board of Directors who devoted over 60 years of service to the Credit Union and its members and whose philanthropic spirit will continue to live on through this honorable scholarship.
