RADCLIFF, KY – October 13, 2017     Fort Knox Federal Credit Union is the 2017 winner of the Louise Herring Philosophy in Action Member Service Award in the more than $1 billion asset category. This is the eighth time the credit union has received the statewide award, which is sponsored by the Kentucky Credit Union League and Credit Union National Association, for its commitment to serving members and the broader community since 1998.


The Credit Union National Association established the Louise Herring Philosophy in Action Member Service Award to annually recognize credit unions that demonstrate, in an extraordinary way, the practical application of the credit union philosophy – “People Helping People” – in the programs and activities offered to its membership.


Fort Knox Federal focuses on living the credit union philosophy everyday. Some of the specific organizations and events the credit union has supported this year include: Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boy Scouts of America, Elizabethtown Police Department, Good Neighbor Expo, Danville Boyle County Humane Society, “Operation Purple Cow” job interview sessions at local high schools, Abraham Lincoln Elementary’s Career Day, Community Fest, Warm Blessings Soup Kitchen, and the 2017 concert series at the Historic State Theater.


“As a local, not-for-profit financial cooperative, the ‘people helping people’ philosophy is a driving force behind everything Fort Knox Federal does,” said Ray Springsteen, Fort Knox Federal President & CEO. “We’re honored to receive this award once again and look forward to continuing to serve through active community participation and better value financial products and services.”


Fort Knox Federal is a local, not-for-profit financial cooperative that has been serving the community since 1950. We are the largest Kentucky-based credit union with nearly $1.5 billion in assets and were named Best Mortgage Company and Best Credit Union in the 2017 News-Enterprise Readers Choice Survey.
