LOC Federal Recognized With Desjardins Youth Financial Education Award We're excited to announce that LOC Federal Credit Union has received CUNA's Desjardins Youth Financial Education Award for the state of Michigan. This specific award recognizes credit unions at the state level for exemplary financial education efforts in their communities. The submittal was completed to share LOC’s passion & dedication in teaching financial education in today’s youth. We shared LOC’s whole story from our 2016-2017 student-run credit union expansion with Howell Public Schools, financial education youth camps at local libraries & YMCA buildings, classroom presentations at middle & high schools and our growing student-run credit union and the Reality Fair program. LOC took first place in our asset size category. All state-level CUNA Award winners will go on to compete against other state league winners for CUNA National Awards. CUNA National Award winners will be announced at the CUNA Government Affairs Conference in 2018. For the official announcement click here.
