First place winner Dylan Caton shared how integrity is more than a one-time action; it’s a way of living.
“People will always make mistakes, but owning up to your wrongdoing is what counts. It is never easy to give up a piece of dignity, but making that decision is the most valuable step in leading a life with strong moral principles,” said Caton.
Gary Sneed, Desert Financial Credit Union Sr. V.P. and Chief Lending Officer, acknowledged that educational expenses continue to rise for students; so they surprised each of the five winners with an additional $1,000 scholarship to help them soar.
