National Maxwell Herring winners announced
MADISON, Wis. (12/7/09)--Recipients of the 2009 Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility and Louise Herring Philosophy in Action Awards have been chosen from among the state winning entries by the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) national awards committee. The 2009 Dora Maxwell Award winners include:
* Great Horizons FCU in Hammond, Ind.; * Pee Dee FCU in Florence, S.C.; * Hawaii First FCU in Kamuela, Hawaii; * Latino Community CU in Durham, N.C. * CASE CU in Lansing, Mich.; * Rogue FCU in Medford, Ore.; * Chartway FCU in Virginia Beach, Va.; and * Credit Union Miracle Day, Inc., Washington, D.C.
Winners of this year’s Louise Herring Award are:
* Communicating Arts CU in Detroit; * Down East CU in Houghton Lake, Maine; and * Credit Union 1 in Anchorage.
“These prestigious awards honor credit unions and their organizations for making commitments to innovative community involvement and to member financial education – both core values of the credit union pioneers whose names are associated with them,” said CUNA President/CEO Dan Mica. “Our hope, at CUNA, is that other credit unions will take notice of the programs celebrated by these awards and find ways to emulate their best practices in their own communities.” Maxwell was an original signer of CUNA’s constitution and a tireless organizer of hundreds of credit unions throughout the United States. She also developed volunteer organizer clubs and worked tirelessly with organizations on behalf of the poor. The Maxwell award is presented to credit unions and chapters for outstanding social responsibility projects in their communities. Herring was also an original signer of CUNA’s constitution as an Ohio delegate to the 1934 national credit union conference in Estes Park, Colo. She saw credit unions as more than just financial institutions and believed they should work to better people’s lives. The Herring award recognizes a credit union demonstrating the credit union philosophy to help better financial matters and increase financial education for its members. Winning entries will be on display at CUNA’s 2010 Governmental Affairs Conference, Feb. 21-25, in Washington, D.C. The award winners will be honored during the Feb. 24 reception.
