The credit union movement is full of unsung professionals who devote their talent to shaping a brighter future for members and their community. Credit Union Magazine’s Credit Union Hero Award honors these credit union leaders who demonstrate their commitment to the longstanding people-helping-people credit union philosophy.
“The Credit Union Hero program recognizes those who have made significant contributions to the credit union movement,” said Ann Hayes Peterson, CUNA vice president of publishing and Credit Union Magazine’s editor-in-chief. “We want to hear about those unsung heroes who, with their passion and dedication, have made a lasting impact at their credit union, and on behalf of all credit unions.”
“I love to share the knowledge and blessings I have with others,” says Harlene Johnson, president of Light Commerce CU in Houston and 2019 Credit Union Hero of the Year.
