Regent University and Chartway Federal Credit Union recently partnered to make college more affordable for a young man from Virginia Beach. Through its Directors' Memorial Scholarship program, Chartway awarded a $1,500 scholarship, which Regent matched, to Benjamin Jones.

"As a longtime supporter of Regent University, Chartway takes great pride in awarding scholarships to hardworking students like Benjamin, whose passion for learning and dedication to the arts provides a platform to make a difference in our community," said Kim Little, regional president of Chartway.

Chartway officially became a Regent Corporate Partner in October 2012, which provides financial incentives for credit union employees and their dependents to attend Regent as well as consulting services and other professional development opportunities. Chartway has participated in Regent's Executive Leadership Series and most recently, sponsored the Regent Golf Classic to support the university's Center for Entrepreneurship.

"Our Regent leadership team values Chartway and its strong relationship with Regent," said David Proffitt, executive director of enrollment marketing and corporate relations. "We look forward to working with Chartway to assist their employees and strengthen the quality of life for Regent students, faculty and staff."

Jones was one of 11 recipients of a Chartway scholarship for 2013. He is enrolled in Regent's College of Arts & Sciences as a cinema-television major with a minor in history, and will begin classes in August. Previously, Jones attended Regent's Film Camp for four summers. He has danced with the Academie de Ballet for 12 years and with Masterworks Productions for five years. Jones is also an active volunteer through the Youth Outreach Program at Courthouse United Methodist Church.

"Ben is a remarkable young adult who role models what our Directors' Memorial Scholarship program is all about—academic drive, strong leadership, and a desire to make a difference in the lives of others. We know he will achieve great things, and are honored that he is now among one of the 116 student members who have benefited from the $160,500 that have been awarded since we first introduced our scholarship program," Little added.
