CEO to INY TimesI--Our best friends were people at CU
COLUMBUS, Ohio (9/3/08)--The CEO of Bob Evans Farms had good things to say about credit unions in an interview with The New York Times (Aug. 30). Steven A. Davis, chief executive of the restaurant chain headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, told about his upbringing in Milwaukee, Wis., as an African-American. He noted his mother was a postal clerk and father was a welder and line supervisor. His parents had set a goal that all five of their children obtain college degrees. They did. How did they do it? With help from a credit union. "Recently, my mother told me, 'Our best friends were the people at the credit union.' My parents borrowed money at the beginning of each school year and hurried to try to pay back that loan before the next school year started," Davis told the Times. For the full story, use the link.
