The Manager of Cobh Michael Carlin welcomed the students and their families to the ceremony and gave a short overview of the new scholarship programme. In his speech he paid tribute to the students who had put in the effort in their submissions. He also outlined the credit unions expectations from the students in that they would become ambassadors for Cobh Credit Union.
The Manager called on the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Cobh Aaron Woods to make the presentations proper. Aaron thanked the independent adjudicating committee made up of Dr Declan Kennedy, David Muldowney, and Christine Burke who had an unenviable task of selecting the winners.
The Credit Union will commit significant funding to the Scholarship programme in the coming years and this scheme is evidence of the Credit Unions strong belief in investing in education which is one of the guiding principles on which they were founded.
