|Elliot Jordan, a 2021 graduate of Windham|
High School, has been honored with the
J. Thomas Gavin Scholarship by the Maine
Credit Union League and Synergent.
Hill will attend Saint Michael's College
in Vermont starting this fall.
He is a member of the Windham Chamber Singers and an inductee of the National Honor Society. In 2020, Jordan earned the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout. He’s the son of Ben and Michelle Jordan.
Ben Jordan is Synergent’s Senior Vice President of Information Technology.
Each year, the scholarship program awards up to two $2,500 scholarships to dependent, college-bound children of employees of the Maine Credit Union League and Synergent.
“The League and Synergent extend our congratulations and best wishes to Elliot,” said Todd Mason, President/CEO of the Maine Credit Union League and Synergent. “Over the past four years, these deserving scholarship recipients have each excelled both in and out of the classroom. I’m confident that their next academic journey will be just as successful.”
The scholarship was established in memory of the late J. Thomas Gavin, who worked for the League and Synergent for 35 years until his sudden passing in 2006. He began his career serving credit unions in 1971.
In 1973, Gavin was the first person tasked with forming an online data processing service for credit unions and was instrumental in the development of MECUL Services Corp (now Synergent), Mason said.
“He also oversaw the development and maintenance of the Credit Union Service Center, where our organization is headquartered,” Mason said. “At the time of his passing, he was the longest-tenured employee. He was known for his strong work ethic, passion for photography, sense of humor, and his caring, selfless nature. “
