NCUF presents four Wegner awards
WASHINGTON (2/24/09)--For only the third time in 21 years, the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) presented four Herb Wegner Memorial Awards at its annual dinner Monday night. Nearly 1,100 credit union leaders and supporters attended the event. “This year’s winners join an elite group of 44 individuals and 20 organizations whose extraordinary efforts over the past 21 years have earned the credit union movement’s highest national honors,” said emcee Bob Schumacher, CEO of MountainCrest CU, Arlington, Wash. Awards and recipients include:
* Lifetime Achievement Award: Bill Sterner, late president/CEO of Elevations Credit Union in Boulder, Colo.; * Individual Achievement Award: Rita Haynes, treasurer, manager and CEO of Faith Community United Credit Union in Cleveland, Ohio; * Individual Achievement Award: Tom Sargent, president/CEO of First Tech Credit Union in Beaverton, Ore.; and * Outstanding Organization Award: Montana Credit Unions for Community Development in Billings, Mont.
Schumacher, who also chairs NCUF’s Awards and Recognition Committee, explained why NCUF chose to present two Individual Achievement Awards this year. Hayne’s achievements in payday loan alternatives, second chance auto loans, and foreclosure preventions are shining examples of how credit unions can change lives in low-income communities, he said. Sargent has achieved what only the most effective national credit union leaders have done throughout our history: uniting credit unions across the country around a single cause, Schumacher added. “We truly appreciate the enthusiasm from credit union supporters who understand how important it is—even in the worst economic times—to share and celebrate the best practices and the best people that credit unions have to offer,” said NCUF Executive Director Steve Delfin.
