TFCU Financial Educator Hopes to Make Impact in Latino Leadership OKC Program
Monday, January 30, 2017 6:55 AM

Giovanni Monterroso, financial educator with Tinker Federal Credit Union (TFCU) in Oklahoma City, has been accepted into the Latino Leadership OKC program.

Latino Leadership OKC (LLOKC) is a program of the Greater Oklahoma City Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, which works to teach participants how to be effective leaders and community volunteers. Participants are from a broad range of organizations representing the private, nonprofit, and government sectors in the Oklahoma City area.

Monterroso is an active participant in the Oklahoma City community and currently serves on the board for Junior Achievement. Community interest is one of the requirements for joining the program, along with being bilingual in both English and Spanish.

Monterroso said he is honored to be accepted and happy that TFCU and LLOKC have given him an opportunity to serve. “TFCU has a close relationship with the Greater OKC Hispanic Chamber of Commerce,” he said. “I hope to increase my commitment to serve the Hispanic community by creating a network of people with whom I can work to further TFCU’s mission.”

As a financial educator, Monterroso hopes the program will give him an opportunity to continue to bring education to the Latino community. “Many Hispanics have the potential to become community leaders in the larger OKC area, but they are limited by educational and network opportunities,” Monterroso said. “Programs like this help expose those potential leaders to the people, tools, and organizations that can help them be more involved not only in the Spanish-speaking community, but the OKC community at large.”

Tinker Federal Credit Union is the largest credit union in Oklahoma, with $3.5 billion in assets and over 342,000 members.
