Jekel honored with NASCUS Pierre Jay Award
DENVER (9/14/12)--Linda Jekel, credit union regulator from Washington, past chairman of the National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors (NASCUS), and longtime NASCUS board director, was honored with the 2012 NASCUS Pierre Jay Award.

Jekel was recognized Wednesday during the NASCUS State System Summit in Denver.

Recipients of the Pierre Jay Award demonstrate outstanding service, leadership and commitment to NASCUS and the dual-chartering system. The Pierre Jay Award, first awarded in 1997, is named after the first commissioner of banks in Massachusetts.

"When we created the Pierre Jay Award, it was meant for advocates like Linda who make countless contributions to NASCUS and to the state credit union regulatory system," said NASCUS President/CEO Mary Martha Fortney. "Throughout her career, Linda has been passionate about states' rights and the important work of advocating for a strong state credit union charter in her home state of Washington and nationwide. "

Last year, NASCUS awarded the Pierre Jay to past NASCUS Chairman Roger Little, retired credit union regulator from Michigan.
