                         Carla Getz, Shaun Gant, Mick Reynolds and Kathy Shepherd

MECU member Shaun Gant was introduced as the first recipient of the Orville Getz Memorial Scholarship at the Credit Union's 18th Annual Meeting on March 12.  The $1,000 scholarship is administered by the UM Foundation and the Phyllis J. Washington College of Education and Human Sciences and is awarded to a working teacher who is pursuing their master's degree or administrative certification through the University of Montana.

Orville Getz was a long-time area educator known for his innovation and commitment to his students who passed away in July 2011.  Orv served on the MECU board of directors for 10 years and was the Superintendent of the Victor Schools at the time of his death.  The Credit Union and Carla Getz have partnered together to endow the scholarship over the next seven years.

Gant is currently a teacher at Hellgate High School and has previously taught at UM and Loyola Sacred Heart High School.  

Anyone interested in donating to the Orville Getz Memorial Scholarship can do so by visiting supportum.org or by contacting the credit union.  An article on the scholarship will appear in the next UM Foundation newsletter "Raising Montana".
