PrimeWay Invests in Future Leaders and Debuts New College Scholarship


HOUSTON, Texas – As part of its continued effort to invest in students, PrimeWay Federal Credit Union awarded $6500 in scholarships for college students and debuted the new Luker Leadership Scholarship. 

The Luker Leadership Scholarship, named to honor former Chairman Ernest Luker, is geared to award one deserving student who demonstrates great leadership in school and in the community.

Building a great leadership foundation early helps create individuals who will continue to lead throughout their professional lives. We are proud to honor one of our organization’s great leaders by naming the Luker Leadership Scholarship after him.

Annette Zimmerman
President and CEO of PrimeWay Federal Credit Union

In addition to the $2500 Luker Leadership Scholarship, PrimeWay also awarded the $2500 Dale Roberts Scholarship and the $1500 Student Account Scholarship.

Taegan Senawong, a Missouri City, Texas resident and University of Houston student, was awarded the $1500 Student Account Scholarship.


Lauren Yang, a Dulles High School graduate who will attend Harvard University in Fall 2019, was awarded both the Luker Leadership Scholarship and the Dale Roberts Scholarship.


PrimeWay college scholarships are judged blindly and are weighted on grades, activities, essays and leadership endeavors. A scholarship committee reviews and scores each application to select a winner.

"We are excited to be able to help students realize their educational aspirations," said Annette Zimmerman. "We continue to be champions for our youth and look forward to what the future holds for these scholarship winners."
