EFCU college scholarship winners

Eaton Family Credit Union is very proud to announce that Aaron DeAngelis, Byren Malone and Jaclyn Noonan have each been awarded $1,000 college scholarships.

“This year the selection committee raised the bar even higher. These kids are real achievers,” Losneck said. “In addition to great grades and test scores, they’re involved in the community. We are committed to helping our members and their children achieve their financial goals.”

DeAngelis attended Euclid High School and was also a Post Secondary Enrollment Option student at Lakeland College. He will attend Mount Union College in Alliance this fall. With a concentration in business, DeAngelis will also study computer science. An honor roll student, he works as a lifeguard during school and in the summer.

Malone also attended Euclid High. He will study business management at The Ohio State University this fall. Malone is a member of the National Honor Society, a distinguished honor roll student and is described as a natural leader. He works as a grocery cashier and sells apparel at Progressive Field; his goal is to own and operate a clothing store.

Noonan attended Willoughby South High School. She, too, will study business management and administration at Ohio State this fall. Noonan has earned the distinction of being first in her class and has worked as an athletic trainer. She was inspired to pursue business management after attending Learning About Business summer entrepreneurship program at Lake Erie College.

Congratulations and good luck to our scholars! Award pictures are available at

EFCU youth week Rockstar

Money Rocks at My Credit Union was the theme for this year’s national credit union youth week. Last Friday, Lawrence from Eastlake was a Rockstar for a Day at Eaton Family Credit Union. Members who deposited at least $100 in a youth account during credit union youth week (April 17 – 23) were entered in a drawing for rock star treatment.

The credit union promoted youth saving accounts with their Rockstar for a Day contest that included a roundtrip limousine ride, iTunes gift card, Cleveland Hard Rock Café gift card, one day’s interest on $1,000,0000, Paper Jamz guitar and starring role in a YouTube music video.

Lawrence, a student at Longfellow Elementary School, along with his parents and brother, were picked up at the end of the day from school May 20 in black, stretch limousine. They were whisked to the credit union for photos and gifts. Lawrence sang Karaoke to I Just Can’t Wait to Be King from the Lion King, and the video was posted to the credit union’s YouTube page.

Mike Losneck, Eaton Family Credit Union president said, “Lawrence is a fun kid. I think he and his family had a blast in the limo … what a great way to kick off the summer!”

Eaton Family Credit Union doubles Relay For Life donation

Once again Eaton Family Credit Union doubled the previous year’s donation for the American Cancer Society Relay For Life, held on May 13 – 14 at Euclid High School, by raising more than $2,500.

“Our staff really stepped up this year,” said Losneck. He added, “The conditions were not great but we got the tent set up and served a well-deserved meal to over 35 survivors. We had great support from friends, community and business partners.”

To augment their usual fundraising efforts, the credit union partnered in a drawing for a Craftsman lawn mower with Sears Hardware in Willoughby Hills. This year, in addition to running a booth, the credit union volunteered to run the Survivor’s Tent which included recognition for attendees and a Thanksgiving-themed meal.

Eaton Family Credit Union appreciates the support from our friends including Atlas Cinemas, Beach Club Bistro, Briardale Greens Golf Course, Euclid Hospital, Euclid Sportsplant, Marie’s Florist, Mary Mavec Opportunity School, Paradise Restaurant & Pub, Pepsi, Play-Away Lounge, Scotti’s Italian Eatery and Tizzano’s Party Center.
