ONTARIO, Calif. (10/22/13)--The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues named Vernon Elliott the 2013 recipient of the Unsung Hero Award.

Richard Myles Johnson--who has known Elliott since they were in the Marines in the early 1970s and who led him into a career in the industry--presented Elliott with the award Oct. 18 at the leagues' Ontario, Calif., offices.
 
Attending the presentation were Elliott's wife, Marilyn, and daughter Courtnay Lynch, vice president of human resources for Xceed Financial FCU in El Segundo, Calif., Lucy Ito, leagues executive vice president and chief operating officer, and Susan Conjurski, league awards committee chairman and CEO of Printing Industries CU, Riverside, Calif.
 
Among the credit unions Elliott served throughout his career were San Diego County CU, where he has his first credit union job, TRW Systems CU, Cal Bear CU, Tiger Federal CU, Western CU, Raincross CU, and Pacific Community CU.
 
"I've enjoyed all of my 36-plus years in the credit union industry," Elliott said upon receiving the award. "And I'm proud of my daughter, who is carrying on the tradition."
 
In addition to Elliott's work with various credit unions, he also worked for the California Credit Union League, where he promoted the idea of a credit union ATM network--now known as the CO-OP network. He served on the Operations Committee for Financial Service Centers Cooperative when the company was first established as well as the League's Assembly/board of directors, CUNA board, and CO-OP Financial Services board.
 
Elliott also served on WesCorp's board of directors. He was chairman his last two years on the board.
