Three Wis. CU fin. lit. programs win governor's award
MADISON, Wis. (2/12/14)--Three Wisconsin credit unions and two state credit union professionals were recognized by Gov. Scott Walker (R) for managing outstanding financial literacy programs.
 
On Tuesday, the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions announced the seven individuals and 13 organizations that received 2013 Wisconsin Financial Literacy Awards. Fifty-two individuals and organizations were nominated.
 
Heather Hill and Errin Schleusner from Royal CU's Balsam Lake branch were acknowledged in the individual category for the "$chool $ense" program. The $1.3 billion-asset credit union also was commended in the organization category.
 
Altra FCU, Onalaska, $960 million in assets, and CoVantage CU, Antigo, $1.08 billion in assets, received awards in the organization category.
 
"The need for personal financial literacy has never been greater," Walker said. "These recipients are equipping Wisconsin citizens with an important life skill. They are truly making a difference in communities across the state."
 
The awards were given out by the Governor's Council of Financial Literacy, which judged programs based on innovative implementation, demonstrated measureable results, collaboration with partners and whether the effort focused on needs-based groups.
