League of Southeastern Credit Unions & Affiliates Honors a Tampa Credit Union with Credit Union National Association’s Statewide Awards

Tampa, Fla. (August 28, 2020) – A Tampa credit union was recently recognized for outstanding outreach to members and communities through the Credit Union National Association’s statewide awards.

Southeastern credit unions help people afford life in a variety of ways and, each year, CUNA provides the League of Southeastern Credit Unions (LSCU) with a way to recognize these efforts with a statewide awards program. The program features four awards, which credit unions compete for within categories based on asset size.

The Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Community Services Award commends a credit union for its outstanding efforts in community projects. The Louise Herring Award for Philosophy in Action honors credit unions that are making exceptional efforts to include credit union philosophy into daily operations. And the Desjardins Financial Education awards celebrates leadership in both youth and adult financial literacy initiatives.

 “It’s our pleasure to be able to recognize our member credit unions for the great work they do for their members and communities each day,” said Jared Ross, president of LSCU. “These awards showcase the best of the best in an industry already known for its creative approach to making a financial difference to consumers.”

This year, the following Tampa credit union was recognized:

  • floridacentral Credit Union - Desjardins Youth Financial Education Award for a credit union with $250 million to $1 billion in assets
