We are pleased to announce that Katie Warren, Operations Support Manager with Heritage Trust, was recently named the winner of the 2018 Lowcountry Chapter of Credit Unions’ CUaware Protégé Competition in Charleston, SC. This competition is an opportunity for credit unions and chapters to recognize the value and potential in rising young professionals, enhance chapter programming and credit union interest, reinforce cooperative principles and credit union philosophy -ultimately supporting CUaware and the league’s investment in developing leadership. To participate, eligible candidates are required to submit a written essay outlining their credit union knowledge, and deliver a presentation.
Katie, along with other employees, first participated in an internal selection process with credit union leaders. She was chosen to move on to represent Heritage Trust in the chapter competition. Through her combined efforts in the written portion of this competition and her oral presentation on CU Viability, Katie was named the CUaware Protégé Winner!
Next, Katie will compete at the CUaware Protégé Finals which will include a written exam in addition to the oral presentation at the Carolinas Credit Union Connect event in Charlotte, NC in February.
