W2W: Meeting Members’ Expectations Is Key for Kerry Parker
When it comes to challenges, having a hard time saying no has made all the difference in Kerry Parker’s life.
“With our focus on the educational community it just made sense to find a way to help local teachers,” said Parker. “It’s incredible how it’s touched a lot of lives. The teachers use those dollars in their classrooms to benefit the students, and parents see the results and how we support that community.”
In 2008, the credit union implemented a savings challenge. Three families were selected to compete for $10,000 over the course of one year. Families met regularly with a financial coach and worked to lower their debt and increase their savings. The family with the most savings and reduction of debt won the contest.
