NYIB announces seven youth advocate scholarships
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (6/16/08)--The National Youth Involvement Board (NYIB) has selected seven credit union professionals for its annual scholarships, aiding the volunteer network’s objective to promote leadership development related to youth services and financial education. The awards cover conference and education fees, with five winners going to the July 28-31 NYIB Conference in Las Vegas, and two to the National Credit Union Foundation’s (NCUF) Credit Union Development Education (CUDE) program. Winners will be recognized at the 2008 NYIB Annual Conference, where the group’s Delegate of the Year and Volunteer of the Year also will be announced. Three credit union professionals have NYIB regional scholarships:
* West Region: Tana Jensen, Visa coordinator, Dakota Plains CU, Edgeley, N.D.; * Central Region: Greg Moeller, branch manager, Teachers CU, Goshen, Ind.; and * East Region: Toni Montgomery, community relations coordinator, AmeriChoice FCU, Mechanicsburg, Pa.
Danielle Scott, financial education leader at LA DOTD FCU, Denham Springs, La., will attend the NYIB Conference on the Robert L. Curry Scholarship and Award. Scott’s involvement fits closely with the principles of leadership development exemplified by Curry, a former president/CEO of CUNA Mutual Group. Another participant--Elizabeth Janowski, CEO/manager of STAR CU, Madison, Wis.--will attend NYIB’s annual conference under the “Serving the Underserved” Scholarship. The award recognizes individuals working with credit unions designated to serve low-income or underserved markets. NYIB will help send two network members to the NCUF CUDE program: Joann Bergrud, marketing manager, North Star Community CU, Maddock, N.D., and Rebecca Isaacs, business development director, the Credit Union Association of New Mexico, Albuquerque, N.M. The next session is Aug.14-20 at IslandWood on Bainbridge Island, Wash.
