We annually award financial scholarships to high school seniors who have been accepted to a college or trade school, existing college students, and teachers through our Jack C. Mathews College Scholarship Competition. For 40 years, Jack worked for the City of Los Angeles and also volunteered 34 years on the LAFCU Board of Directors. After retiring from the Board in 2011, the LAFCU Scholarship was re-named in his honor. Jack passed away in 2013.
