LSCU Announces State CUNA Award Winners
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., and TALLAHASSEE, Fla., (8/14/13)--The League of Southeastern Credit Unions & Affiliates awarded eight credit unions from Alabama and Florida with 12 Dora Maxwell, Louise Herring and Alphonse Desjardins awards.
 
Army Aviation Center FCU, Daleville, Ala.; First Commerce CU, Tallahassee, Fla.; and CFE FCU, Lake Mary, Fla., each received multiple awards. Army Aviation Center won a first-place Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility award, a first-place Desjardins Financial Education Youth award and a second-place Louise Herring Philosophy in Action award.
 
Winning the awards "affirms our dedication to the credit union philosophy of 'people helping people' and giving back to the communities we serve," said Lisa Hales, Army Aviation Center FCU vice president of marketing. "Giving back to our communities is a big part of who we are and what we do at AACFCU."
 
CFE FCU won a first-place Herring award and a second-place Maxwell award. First Commerce CU, based in Tallahassee, won a first-place Maxwell award and a first-place Herring award.
 
"Commitment to community is one of our core values," said Cecilia Homison, CEO of First Commerce CU. "Through the Champions for Charity initiative, we reach out to our
community and call on their passion for Seminole sports programs to support charitable
organizations in their quest for funding."
 
Also taking home first-place honors in the Dora Maxwell category were two Tallahassee credit unions, Florida State University CU and Tallahassee-Leon FCU. Alabama CU, Tuscaloosa, also received a first-place Dora Maxwell award.
 
Each first-place winner's entry progresses to the Credit Union National Association's national award consideration. The winners are honored at the 2014 CUNA Government Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C.
