Higher Education Assistance Foundation Awards Scholarship to CMCC Student
November 16, 2015
The trustees of the Higher Education Assistance Foundation (HEAF) are pleased to announce the awarding of a scholarship in the amount of $1,000 to Morgan Kesseli of South Paris. Morgan is an honors student in the business administration and management program at Central Maine Community College. She received the award November 10 before a gathering of bankers and local legislators at Androscoggin Bank in Lewiston.
The Maine Higher Education Assistance Foundation was established in the 1950’s as a guarantee fund for student loans. The founders included a wide range of banks, businesses, community organizations and individuals. In 1990, the HEAF trustees, to continue the original intent of the founding members, initiated a scholarship program funded by the return on the original loan guarantee funds. The fund is now managed by the Maine Bankers Association.
