Augusta, ME – Maine State Credit Union has established a scholarship in the name of its late CEO, Normand R. Dubreuil, with a $50,000 donation to The Foundation for Maine's Community College System and Maine Maritime Academy. The scholarship fund will award need-based grants to Maine residents pursuing an education in the trades and technology. 

 

"Normand was a strong advocate for continued learning and a proud resident of Maine," said Tucker Cole, Chief Executive Officer at Maine State Credit Union. "He was a true believer in the credit union philosophy and was always looking for a way to help those in need. This scholarship will ensure his legacy continues." 

 

The Normand R. Dubreuil Scholarship fund will support students in the community college system across the state as well as Maine residents who are attending Maine Maritime Academy in Castine. The respective schools will manage the scholarship fund. The goal of the scholarship is to provide for students who may be struggling financially to continue with their education. 

 

Normand R. Dubreuil was the Chief Executive Officer at Maine State Credit Union for 21 years. He started his career at Maine State CU in 1985 and became CEO in 1994. Dubreuil helped to build Maine State Credit Union to be one of the largest credit unions in Maine. Through his career, he was an avid learner and always made sure the employees at Maine State Credit Union had access to all types of education and training as well as provided tuition reimbursement for those who wished to obtain a bachelor's or master's degree. Normand passed away in 2017. 

 

"We were looking for a way to honor Norm and help Maine residents with their educational needs," said George Lapointe, Chairperson, Maine State Credit Union Board of Directors. "Norm was a supporter of education and was always helping people. He exemplified the credit union mission, and the Normand R. Dubreuil Scholarship Fund will build onhis work.”
