HOUSTON — In the ten years that the African American Credit Union Coalition has met each year, the group has worked to place more than 200 interns, raised $24,000 for scholarships and led an effort with credit unions, leagues and vendors raising nearly $2 million towards the building of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. memorial.

Barbara Stephens, AACUC chairwoman, told attendees that the coalition has come a long way since its incorporation in 1999.

Scholarships have been provided to Kenyan credit union representatives to attend Strathmore University in Nairobi.
