The Kinetic Credit Union awarded two students with funds from the Ronald J. Mahoney Kinetic scholarship. Sophie Murtey from Columbus High School and Jeremiah Lee Cowling from Russell County High School each received $2,500 for “demonstrating their committment to excellence and service in academic studies and community involvement.”
Murtey will reportedly be attending the University of Georgia to study Economics and International Affairs, while Cowling will be studying Aerospace Engineering at Auburn University.
The Ronald J. Mahoney Kinetic scholarship was named in honor of former Kinetic Chairman Ron Mahoney, who served on the company’s Board of Directors for 18 years and was Chairman from 2007 until his death in January 2016.
“Mr. Mahoney was passionate about community, education and investing in our youth,” said Mark Littleton, President and CEO. “Sophie and Jeremiah exemplify the spirit of the Ronald J. Mahoney Kinetic scholarship through their academic achievements and work in the community. They are the next generation of leaders, and we wish them the best of luck as they take this next important step in their lives.”
