Mississippi Maxwell Desjardins awards go to Keesler FCU
JACKSON, Miss. (12/15/08)—Keesler FCU received first place in the Mississippi state Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Award and Desjardins Youth Financial Education Award competitions. The awards were sponsored by the Credit Union National Association and the Mississippi Credit Union Association. The Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Recognition Award recognizes a credit union for its community involvement in an activity that helps others or strengthens the structure of a community. Biloxi-based Keesler participated in the 2008 American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life--as it has the past four years--and is a repeat recipient of the “Team Spirit” award. Keesler also received special recognition for being the top overall fundraiser. The Desjardins Award considers all activities supporting the personal financial education of youth. Keesler provides classroom presentations and conducts activities to spread financial education to the youth of the Mississippi Gulf Coast area. Keesler FCU also designed a four-week in-depth financial education program, MoneyTalks, which provides financial education to area high school juniors and seniors. “Our goal is to help students realize their financial dreams while managing money responsibly,” stated Dawn Power-Pernaciaro, Keesler FCU community education specialist. Keesler has $1.6 billion in assets.
