"As an association of debt collection businesses, we believe that it is important that young citizens understand their personal responsibility for managing their financial affairs," said Carrie Finney, foundation chairman and president of The CMI Group Inc., an ACA International member company in Carrollton, Texas. The scholarship recipients are: * Leslie Ortiz, the daughter of Norma and Jesus Ortiz, is a 2016 graduate from Roosevelt High School in San Antonio. Ortiz was sponsored by Account Services, an ACA of Texas member agency located in San Antonio. * Jamie Williams, the daughter of Cheryl and Robert Williams, is a 2016 graduate from Royce City High School in Royce City, Texas. Williams was sponsored by T.L. Thompson & Associates of Garland, an ACA of Texas member. Finney said the American Collectors Association of Texas Educational Foundation sponsors a scholarship and essay contest each year to focus graduating students' attention on the subject of personal financial responsibility. To be eligible to win a scholarship, each applicant had to meet the academic, attendance and citizenship standards of the state of Texas and their school district for graduation. In addition, each applicant had to submit a 500-750-word essay on the theme, "Building Good Credit for Financial Independence." ACAINTERNATIONAL.ORG http://www.ACAINTERNATIONAL.ORG
