Bob Bennett Memorial Video Scholarship


Bob Bennett Memorial Video Scholarship

The Bob Bennett Memorial Scholarship was established in remembrance of Robert P. Bennett, a dedicated credit union advocate, to inspire future generations to pursue their academic goals.

He joined the credit union in 1954 and served on the Board of Directors until 2002, where he volunteered over 30 years of his time and service to Unity One Credit Union. Dedicated to growth and change, Bob always put the members first when decision making.
