Hoosman invited to MLK Memorial ceremony
WASHINGTON (8/25/11)--Hubert Hoosman Jr., president/CEO of Vantage CU in Bridgeton, Mo., will attend the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial Dedication Ceremony and Dream Gala this weekend in Washington, D.C. Hoosman helped raise more than $1 million for the memorial during the past five years, and was invited to the dedication ceremony, the $670 million asset credit union said. “I just want to enjoy the moment,” Hoosman said, “I want to see [the monument],” which he called the “highlight of my career.” In 2006, Hoosman became aware of efforts to build the memorial when the credit union was asked if it could make a contribution. Vantage pledged $50,000, and asked the nation’s credit unions to contribute to helping build the memorial. Hoosman, who also is active in the 250-member African American Credit Union Coalition, received the group’s endorsement for the fundraising effort. While in Washington, D.C., Hoosman will attend the Interfaith Prayer Service Saturday morning, the Dream Gala Saturday evening and the official dedication on Sunday.
