Heritage Trust Employee Named Lowcountry Chapter Protégé
Tuesday, November 6, 2018
(CHARLESTON, S.C.) – 11/6/2018 – – Charleston Young Professionals and the Carolinas Credit Union League Lowcountry Chapter recently hosted the CUaware Protégé Competition. This annual event is an opportunity for credit union chapters to support the league’s investment in developing leadership, reinforce cooperative principles and credit union philosophy by recognizing rising professionals age 35 and under.
Each candidate must choose a topic of interest from the pre-determined list provided by the Carolinas Credit Union League, create a visual presentation to accompany their speech and present to a panel of judges. Candidates first present as part of an internal selection process within their credit union to identify who will represent the organization at the chapter-level competition. Once chosen to move on, they present to an audience of their peers and judges.
Cierra Faubert, Member Service Representative was selected as the Heritage Trust Federal Credit Union representative in this year’s competition. Her presentation focused on the many ways credit unions are committed to providing members with outstanding financial education.
We are excited to announce that a unanimous decision by the judges named Cierra the 2018 Lowcountry Chapter Protégé. We are so excited for Cierra and would like to wish her the best of luck as she moves on to the state-level competition where she will present against other Chapter Protégés from across North and South Carolina!
“The CUaware Protégé Competition is a great forum for credit union employees to come and hear others speak about the united power of our movement. During the Lowcountry Chapter Competition, we got an opportunity to hear presentations from credit union representatives, such as Cierra Faubert share true testimonials that made an impact and positive impression on the people in our communities and the members we serve” commented Robin Horlback, Heritage Trust Training Director.
