LAS VEGAS — Paul Coakley, chairman of the $35 million St. Agnes Employees Federal Credit Union, Baltimore, and a CU volunteer since 1972, was named "Director of the Year" today at the annual National Directors Convention.

Coakley, a retired administrator at St. Agnes Hospital and now a community college professor in Baltimore, was honored for his "vision, dedication and passion" to the industry and his willingness to teach others about CU worth.

During his tenure, "he has worked with 53 different directors," said Ben Rogers, conference chairman who awarded Coakley a plaque from the stage at the Rio Hotel/Casino. Coakley, who helped introduce share drafts and Visa to the CU, performed extraordinary, but "quiet service" to his CU and the industry, said Rogers.
