The First Financial Federal Credit Union Foundation recently awarded a $750 Erma Dorrer Literacy Scholarship to Monmouth University student Kevin Rogers of Ocean Township.  Kevin was one of six students from the local community who received the scholarship.

“We are delighted to assist in furthering the educational aspirations these worthy young men and women,” said First Financial President and CEO, Issa Stephan.  “Our credit union puts a high priority on education, after all – that’s how First Financial began 76 years ago, with a group of schoolteachers in Asbury Park.”
