RBS Citizens Financial Group, Inc. (RBSCFG) announced August 16, 2012 that Christina Wang of Freemont is a second prize winner of its annual TruFit Good Citizen Scholarship program. She receives a $1,000 scholarship to help supplement the cost of tuition for the fall semester at the University of California, Irvine.
Started in 2011, the scholarship program recognizes and rewards students whose volunteer efforts have made a lasting impact in their communities. Winners were chosen based on the responsibility and leadership skills they have demonstrated through their community service. More than 5,000 high school seniors and college students applied for the scholarships.
Wang founded the largest Leo Club International since 1957, by involving more than 100 members. The club raises money for the Lions Center for the Blind in Oakland and Daraja Academy in Africa. Wang contacts senior centers, elementary schools and other organizations in need of volunteer support and donations so members can offer their services.
Wang and 39 other winners are featured in more detail on the Charter One Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/charterone).
