Congrats to high school senior Jared Rios. The borough son was the recipient of the 2018 James McKeon Memorial Scholarship awarded by the Municipal Credit Union.

Jared is graduating this month from St. Edmund Preparatory High School in Sheepshead Bay and will use his $5,000 scholarship funds towards his expenses at Princeton University when he starts classes in the fall to study political science.

He is one of nine recipients of this year’s scholarship program.

Eligibility for the MCU scholarships was open to any MCU member, a child, or a grandchild of a member in good standing. Selection was based on academic performance, extracurricular activities, community service, letters of recommendation, and an essay expressing personal goals.

Standing O wishes Jared success and good luck in college.

Municipal Credit Union (22 Cortlandt St. in Manhattan,
