Opportunities to Educate Never End for BrightStar CU Chair Dr. Dorothy Orr
SUNRISE, Fla. - When it comes to education, BrightStar Credit Union Board Chairperson Dr. Dorothy Jackson Orr is a big believer in "doing what you can and as much as you can to help others."
"I grew up in the segregated South and we were very poor. The teachers in our community were always so encouraging and I thought what a noble profession. Here they are teaching us day in, day out and for next to nothing," said Orr. "You could say I was trained all my life to be an orator and groomed to be a teacher and I'm so happy that I was because it is truly the mother of all professions. Now that I'm retired I take the time to teach as many as I can about credit unions."
