Washington state CU leaders honored
FEDERAL WAY, Wash. (10/12/09)--The Washington Credit Union Foundation honored several credit unions and representatives during its Summit Awards program Sept. 17. The awards are named in honor of a trek that 21 credit union professionals took to Mt. Rainier in Washington 25 years ago. The group was led by Bruce Rouillard, former Washington Credit Union League president. Washington State Employees CU (WSECU) President/CEO Kevin Foster-Keddie received the 2009 Mark of Excellence Award, the highest statewide honor. The award is given to individuals who have displayed 25 years or more of credit union leadership. Foster-Keddie was one of the leaders who helped create a shared branching initiative in Washington. He also developed the first cooperative television advertising campaign. WSECU is located in Olympia. Other awards included:
* The Outstanding Credit Union Volunteer Award, presented to Graeme Sackrison, board member, Generations CU, Olympia; * Distinguished Credit Union Professional of the Year Award, given to Tumwater-based O Bee CU President/CEO Bruce Cramer; * The Legacy Award, presented to Harborstone CU, Tacoma; and * The Desjardins Youth Financial Education Award, given to Spokane (Wash.) Teachers CU.
The foundation also presented four Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Awards to:
* SnoCope FCU, Everett, $20 million to $50 million in assets; * O Bee CU, $100 million to $200 million; * Horizon CU, Spokane, $200 million to $500 million; and * GESA CU, Richland, more than $500 million.
