Roger Heacock GAC-HTH Scholarship Program

The GAC auction has generated approximately $50,000 in revenue over the last several years.  The funds are then used to provide assistance scholarships to credit union professionals from North and South Dakota who attend the America's Credit Unions GAC Conference and other meetings, such as our annual “Hike the Hill” events.  Since 2008, 81 scholarships have been awarded for a total of $61,000!
