New Hampshire CU exec gets Presidents award
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (4/25/08)--Gordon Simmons, president/CEO of Service CU, Portsmouth, N.H., received the President’s Volunteer Service Award from National Credit Union Administration Chairman JoAnn Johnson this week. The award was presented to Simmons during Johnson’s remarks to the 36th Annual Defense Credit Union Council’s (DCUC) Overseas Subcouncil Meeting in Edinburgh, Scotland. Johnson also used the forum to commend credit unions for dedicated service to the nation’s military personnel and their families, and highlighted their efforts to enhance financial literacy. Those efforts, the chairman said, help prevent predatory lending. In that framework, Johnson recognized the volunteer efforts of Simmons, particularly those targeted at improving financial literacy among military personnel and students. “Whether it's by the development and leadership of the ‘CU Reality Fair’ through his service as chairman of the board of America’s CU Museum, which provides young consumers with financial education tools and resources to make better choices for the rest of their lives, to his tireless devotion to national financial education initiatives that foster better decisions on the part of military servicemembers, Gordon sets a daily example for credit union leaders across the country,” Johnson said. Service CU has more than 108,000 members and serves the residents of New Hampshire and Massachusetts as well as U.S. military personnel and their families around the world. In 2003, President George W. Bush created the President's Volunteer Service Award Program to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service.
