Wednesday evening, during the 2016 Annual Meeting, Cornerstone Credit Union League held a special awards dinner for the many deserving professionals in the region whose good works positioned them for honor and recognition. For 2017, the winner of the Professional of the Year award went to Lily Newfarmer from Tarrant County's Credit Union.

The purpose of the Cornerstone Professional of the Year Award is to recognize an individual's accomplishments, time, and effort in support and promotion of the credit union movement. This report contains only a small list of Newfarmer's achievements. She has certainly proved worthy of the Professional of the Year award, and Cornerstone offers its congratulations!

Newfarmer has been a one-person dynamo. Some of her accomplishments include growing her credit union from $23 million in assets to $82 million, doubling the size of her membership, and growing capital 135 percent.

Newfarmer is a past chair of the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation, a Dora Maxwell Award recipient, an alumnus of Southwest CUNA Management School, and a Credit Union Development Educator (DE). She currently serves as foundation advisory director representing the Credit Union Development Educators in the Cornerstone region.

She started out as an accounting manager at Tarrant County's Credit Union in 1996, and in 2001 became its president and CEO.

Cornerstone is thrilled to offer congratulations to this year's winner of the Professional of the Year Award, Lily Newfarmer.
