CU System
CUs reached 413106 students in school year
MADISON, Wis. (8/10/12)--Credit unions reached 413,106 students in 13,008 classrooms presentations during the 2011-2012 school year, according to the National Youth Involvement Board (NYIB).

"Credit unions have responded to young people seeking guidance and fundamental financial knowledge, and not a moment too soon," outgoing NYIB Chairman Rebecca Isaacs shared. "The magic lies in cooperation. Never have I seen an organization with so many willing to share their stories, their successes, their failures, their triumphs and their heroes."

Anissa Arthenayake of OSU FCU, Corvallis, Ore., conducted the most classroom presentations (730). Marsha Lunden of Desert Schools CU, Phoenix, reached the most students (17,048) in the 2011-2012 reporting year. Arthenayake and Lunden increased their totals from the previous year.

The NYIB "Top Classroom Presenter"--the person with the greatest percentage increase in classroom presentations over the previous year--was Michael Lee of The Golden 1 CU, Sacramento, Calif. Lee made 174 presentations in 2011-2012, increasing his total 128.95% from 2010-11.

Julie Blaylock of Community Financial CU, Plymouth, Mich., was recognized for "Most Students Reached." Blaylock educated 3,297 students in 2011-2012, a 411.96% increase over the number of students she reached in 2010-2012. 

The NYIB also recognized the region edcuating the most students. The Southeast Region reached 129,144 students.

NYIB, celebrating its 40th year and the recipient of the 2011 Herb Wegner award for outstanding organization, is composed of volunteer credit union professionals devoted to financial education and youth-oriented services. Among NYIB's annual objectives are building and refining the data, helping credit unions quantify their work and providing regulators, legislators and others an example of credit unions' philosophy at work.
