San Diego, CA – July, 2022 –Wheelhouse Credit Union (Wheelhouse) has awarded five $1,000 “Badge of Honor” Scholarships to college-bound students, honoring the heroic efforts of San Diego County’s first responders and their families. In the third year of the Badge of Honor program, scholarships were awarded to rising college freshmen with a parent/grandparent/legal guardian who is an active member of law enforcement, fire protection service, healthcare or EMT in San Diego County.

North County students in Carlsbad and San Marcos received Badge of Honor Scholarships for demonstrating leadership, public service, and a desire to make an impact on their schools and communities.
