Wisconsin league 3 CUs receive governors fin lit awards
MADISON, Wis. (2/11/08)--Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle’s Council on Financial Literacy selected the Wisconsin Credit Union League and three credit unions to receive its 2008 Governor’s Financial Literacy Awards. They were among 10 organizations receiving the awards. The winners were selected from nominations by the council’s awards committee. Evaluations were based on: innovative implementation, demonstrated measurable results, collaboration with partners, and scope. Credit union winners included Altra FCU, Lacrosse; Community First CU, Appleton; and CoVantage CU, Antigo. “Credit unions have done a tremendous service for Wisconsin by providing teachers with free resources that accomplish the financial learning goals the state has defined as critical for future financial independence,” Gov. Doyle said. “The future of our state relies on the financial self-sufficiency of each new wave of graduates." Credit unions also "are enhancing Wisconsin’s economy by making people more knowledgeable about their own money,” he added. “We all benefit from that.” The council was created in 2005 to advise Doyle on how to improve the financial literacy of Wisconsin citizens.
