A senior at Discovery High School recently received a $2,000 scholarship from Delta Community Credit Union and KISS 104.

The HBCU scholarship went to Joreal Eady, 17, who is planning to pursue a degree in health care management. She’s been accepted to Clark Atlanta University and Albany State University.

Eady is active in several school and community activities, including the Secretary of State Student Ambassadors program and Health Occupations Students of America, and is a volunteer at SaltLight emergency shelter.

She was the fourth student last year to receive a Delta Community-KISS 104 scholarship, a program which will continue in 2017.

Last year, Delta Community Credit Union invested more than $600,000 in the communities it serves in the form of scholarships, grants, sponsorships and donations to organizations which are in alignment with Delta Community’s commitment to support the physical and financial well-being of individuals and families.
