Tarrant County's Melissa Burleson Parlays Her CUDE into the Credit Union Difference
Thursday, April 21, 2016 7:00 AM

In February, we brought you news about Melissa Burleson's CUDE project and the great things she's been doing with it. Every month, Burleson and others have partnered with groups like Kids Vision Fest, the Center for Transforming Lives, and Carter Blood Care to provide help where it's most needed.

Burleson is business development coordinator for Tarrant County's Credit Union (TCCU). She completed her CUDE training in the spring of 2015 and has been very busy organizing activities in service to her community—not just talking the talk, but living the credit union difference.

In March, her focus was on housing. The staff of TCCU, First Class American CU, and Burleson partnered with the Presbyterian Night Shelter, collecting new blankets, socks, toiletries, and other items for residents of the shelter.

During April, Burleson says, their focus will be on education. To that end, TCCU will be hosting a lunch-n-learn on "Good Credit Fitness." Presenting will be Galli Davis with ASG Results. TCCU will also be partnering with Texas AgriLife Extension to sponsor financial education programs.

In May, the focus will be on the environment, for which they will be partnering with the Tarrant Regional Water District for the Eagle Mountain Lake Cleanup event.

"Being a part of a credit union is not just about opening accounts and lending funds," Burleson noted. "It’s about the cooperative spirit and giving back and reaching out to the communities we serve."
