NASHVILLE, Tenn. (5/20/14)--The Tennessee Credit Union League (TCUL) and Volunteer Corporate CU jointly inducted three individuals into the Tennessee Credit Union Hall of Fame during the league's annual convention and expo in Chattanooga, Tenn.
The 2014 inductees are:
Broxterman began at Navy Memphis CU in 1960 working as a clerk making $0.50 per hour. She retired in 2004 as president/CEO of Kimberly Clark CU in Memphis. During her 23 years at Kimberly Clark CU, assets grew to $73 million from $11 million.
Through regular attendance at board meetings and numerous committee meetings in 34 years as a volunteer, Runyan's service has been vitally important to the purpose, mission, and vision of a credit union that serves more than 144,000 members from 16 locations.
For 36 years, Bearden guided the growth and expansion of AEDC FCU, now Ascend FCU, as CEO. Her credit union career spanned almost 50 years. As CEO, Bearden implemented checking accounts, offered mortgage loans, individual retirement accounts and ATMs, and opened branches on Saturdays. All of these services, which are now considered standard offerings in many credit unions, were pivotal in the credit union's growth.
