In 1967, several ODOT employees came together and formed a credit union based on the cooperative philosophy of people helping people. One of these employees was Joseph W. Gentry, who served on the board of directors until he was appointed Director Emeritus. As Director Emeritus, Gentry represented the values and traditions upon which this credit union was built. He had two passions: the credit union and education. It is our privilege to carry on his legacy!
In honor of Joseph W. Gentry, we are awarding two scholarlships of $2,000 each to help cover the costs of post-secondary education. Applicants must be a Bridge Credit Union member, Struthers CU member or, have a parent/guardian who is a Bridge Credit Union or Struthers CU member. Whether you’re pursuing an undergraduate degree, graduate degree, or certificate program, you can apply! Each year, candidates with the proper qualifications are required to answer one credit union-related question (please see below).
