In a ceremony in Galveston Saturday attended by hundreds of Galveston residents, the league presented the Juntos Avanzamos (Together We Advance) flag, which represents the $213 million asset credit union's participation in the league initiative (LoneStar Leaguer Aug. 14). The designation is earned through a rigorous application and review process, said the league. The credit union must demonstrate is has the capacity, commitment and compassion to serve the Hispanic market's financial needs.

"We have spent several years working to establish the infrastructure needed to effectively serve all members of the Galveston community," Coastal Community FCU President/CEO Carol Gaylord Purdy noted. "As a locally owned financial cooperative, our entire mission is to make sure people from all walks of life have access to affordable financial services that will help them build long-term stability and wealth."

The goal of the league's initiative is to identify credit unions effectively serving the emerging Hispanic market so that when families see the Juntos Avanzamo flag, they will know that affordable and friendly services are available to them.

Texas Credit Union Foundation Executive Director Courtney Moran presented the flag to the credit union during its "Back to School Bash."
