Roxi Jensen of Embarrass (Minn.) Vermillion CU and Bridget Moeller of Greater Minnesota CU received their volunteer awards on April 14 during an awards banquet held in conjunction with the Minnesota Credit Union Network's (MnCUN's) 2012 Annual Meeting & Convention.

Jensen, assistant manager of Embarrass Vermillion FCU, was recognized for her contributions to MnCU4Kids with its Volunteer of the Year Award. She became a committee member in 2006. She has been actively involved in serving on subcommittees for the Credit Union for Kids golf tournament, annual meeting fundraiser and the Bowl-O-Rama event.

"I'm honored to be recognized for this award, and I'm happy to serve on a committee that raises money for such a worthwhile cause," Jensen said. "With our fundraisers and other activities, we can directly help the kids and families who need it at Gillette. It's fulfilling work, and I'm proud to be a volunteer for this committee."

Last year, Minnesota raised nearly $160,000 for Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare in St. Paul, which has outreach clinics statewide. Nationally, fundraising for CU4Kids takes place in all 50 states.

Moeller, vice president of human resources and training at Greater Minnesota CU in Mora, earned the Minnesota Family Involvement Council's Outstanding Volunteer Award for her service on the committee. Moeller joined the FIC in 2005 and was elected to serve as the chair of the committee in 2011.

Before serving Chair, Moeller served as the FIC's vice chair since 2007. She plays an integral role in coordinating the committee's annual silent auction fundraiser, and she is involved in the committee's scholarship program. This is the second consecutive year she has received the award.

The FIC is a volunteer-based organization run by credit union professionals. Its mission is to enhance the future of the credit union movement by providing financial awareness to families. The FIC focuses on providing scholarships to Minnesota credit union members to help further their education and to nurture their relationship with credit unions. The recipient of the annual award is voted on by members of the council.

"The FIC is an incredible group of people," Moeller said. "I know there are many people on this committee who work very hard and are quite deserving of this award, and it is a great honor to be recognized by them again. The committee's dedication to our scholarship program and their commitment to financial education are notable contributions to Minnesota's credit unions. It's a great feeling to be part of this team."

"It's the dedication of people like Roxi and Bridget and their significant contributions to credit unions that help strengthen the movement," said Rachel Anderson, MnCUN director of communications and MnCU4Kids and FIC liaison. "They truly believe in their respective causes, and the accolades they received are well-deserved."
