GFA Awards David Jacques Memorial Scholarship

Each year GFA is honored to present the David Jacques Memorial Scholarship celebrating the memory of long-time GFA supporter and member of the Board of Directors, David Jacques, to an area high school senior for their scholastic achievements and extracurricular engagement.

This year’s recipient is Alexis Faircloth, a senior at Conant High School and a Rindge, NH resident. Tina M. Sbrega, President & CEO; Paul Fitzpatrick, Senior Vice-President, GFA Investment Management; and Normand Mercier, Rindge Branch Manager presented a check in the amount of $500.00 to Ms. Faircloth. Alexis is a student who continues to balance honors-level classes, extracurricular activities, and finds joy in being an active volunteer in her community.

Ms. Faircloth’s work ethic and dedication to her school and community make her a worthy recipient of the David Jacques Memorial Scholarship. She plans to pursue a Business degree in either accounting or marketing at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, NY.

While receiving the scholarship she stated, “When I heard that I would be awarded this scholarship, I was of course ecstatic and even a little relieved-- we all know how college expenses can add up. I'm really grateful for the extra bit of financial support.”

“The graduating class of 2020 is extraordinary for many reasons.” Said Tina M. Sbrega, President & CEO of GFA Federal Credit Union. “During a time of such uncertainty, these students have continued to excel. We are proud to provide this scholarship year after year. From all of us at GFA, congratulations to the class of 2020.”
