LMCU Awards 20 High School Seniors with Scholarships

Lake Michigan Credit Union (LMCU) is pleased to announce the 20 winners of this year’s Lloyd F. Hutt Scholarship essay contest.

Established in 1990, the annual Lloyd F. Hutt Scholarship essay contest provides 20 local high school seniors each with a $2,000 college scholarship. This scholarship program honors the legacy of LMCU founder, Lloyd F. Hutt, and his lifelong commitment to education and community involvement.

This year’s essay topic was: “LMCU is celebrating its 90th birthday. What would you like to see celebrated by the time you’re 90?”

Applicants were required to write an original 750-1,500-word essay exploring the topic. Essays were evaluated blindly by a panel of independent judges, with the greatest emphasis placed on passion for the topic, creativity, clarity, and originality.

Since 1990, the Lloyd F. Hutt Scholarship has provided over $580,000 in scholarship dollars to 332 local high school seniors. This year, there were 902 essays submitted.

The 2023-24 Lloyd F. Hutt Scholarship recipients are:

LMCU Vice President of Community Relations Matt Cook congratulated this year’s winners, “With so many great essays, narrowing it down to only 20 was not an easy decision. These essays gave us a look at the futures that our youth envision for themselves, and they were so exciting to read. We are thrilled to support these scholars in their pursuit of higher education.”
