MWCUA Honors Outstanding CUs, Individuals
DENVER, Colo. (10/10/13)--The Mountain West Credit Union Association honored employees and member credit unions last month who helped raise about $30,000 to benefit the league's charitable arm, the Mountain West Credit Union Foundation.
 
Fred Kent, former president/CEO of First CU, Tempe, Ariz.; Jeremy Gibson of Trona Valley Community FCU, Green River, Wyo.;  Desert Schools FCU, Phoenix; and Denver (Colo.) Community CU were all honored at a fundraiser on Sept. 27 at Mile High Station in Denver.
 
John Uchida, president/CEO of Aurora, Colo.-based Space Age FCU and chair of the MWCUF, termed the Star Gala "a great success."

"Credit union leaders came together to honor and celebrate the foundation that credit unions stand on, 'people helping people,'" he said.

Money raised at the event--attended by more than 220 credit union employees and volunteers from Arizona, Colorado and Wyoming--states served by the MWCUA--will support leadership and community development.
