Noreen posthumously awarded Minn CU Builder award
ST. PAUL, Minn. (12/20/12)--Walter Noreen, former volunteer at Postal CU, Woodbury, Minn., was posthumously honored with the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation's (MnCUF's) Credit Union Builder Award this month.

This distinction recognizes those who have dedicated time and energy to building the credit union movement. Nominations are made by credit unions and other organizations in honor of or in memory individuals who has been instrumental in their success.

An assistant postmaster, Noreen was first elected to the board of directors of St. Paul Postal Employees CU, now Postal CU, in 1967. Among his many affiliations, Noreen served as District Governor of Lions International, and was an active member of the St. Paul Park/Newport Lions Club. He helped found the St. Croix Lions and helped create Camp New Hope. After more than two decades of volunteer service, he retired from the board in 1990. 

Noreen joins 13 other individuals honored in the past five years with the MnCUF's CU Builder Award. The names of the recipient and the contributing credit union are permanently displayed in the Minnesota Credit Union Network's lobby.

"Through the generous donation of their time, energy and resources, these individuals have exemplified the true meaning of the credit union philosophy," said MnCUF Chair Pat Brekken.
