Northeast Community Credit Union awards the William L. Armstrong Scholarship annually to qualifying credit union members who are graduating from high school and will be attending college.

The scholarship was originally established to honor William L.

This year, the scholarships were awarded to Gracie Freeman of Cloudland High School; Macy Fulmer of Elizabethton High School; Heather Grindstaff of Hampton High School; Blakelee Ollis of Happy Valley High School; and Kaley Madison Rice of Unaka High School.
Students are recommended by teachers and leaders in the community.  They have exemplified good citizenship in the classrooms and are active in volunteer work in the local area.
