Credit Union Magazine’s 2019 Credit Union Heroes include a former teacher who’s still displaying class as a financial educator, an ex-banker who’s now preaching the credit union gospel, a financial counselor with a passion for outreach, and a self-described “bridge” to the community who has a penchant for collaboration.
While each hero has her own journey, they share a commitment to community and a selﬂess desire to improve the lives of society’s most vulnerable.
In this episode of the CUNA News Podcast, we talk to the four 2019 Credit Union Heroes—those who relentlessly promote credit union philosophy, dedicate themselves to credit union principles, and make a sustainable difference in their communities:
• Cherry Dale, financial education director, Virginia Credit Union, Richmond.
• Harlene Johnson, president, Light Commerce Credit Union, Houston.
• Diane Sandoval-Griego, financial empowerment and outreach manager, Guadalupe Credit Union, Santa Fe, N.M.
• Bridget (Looby) Staffileno, vice president of community affairs, Catholic Federal Credit Union, Saginaw, Mich.
We will honor the winner during CUNA’s America’s Credit Union Conference June 17-20 at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
