Financial Literacy Efforts Spotlighted
SkyOne FCU Chief Marketing Officer Astrid Rives was recently awarded special congressional recognition for outstanding business leadership in the financial service Industry. Rives received this honor from Rep. John Campbell, R-CA and chairman of the House Financial Services Committee.
SkyOne delivers most of its financial services to members virtually through its advanced iSky Online and iSky Mobile Banking channels.
Rives—a veteran of the credit union industry for almost 20 years—was selected for this recognition by Campbell based on her leadership in supporting the financial literacy of SkyOne members and local Southern California communities.
Among these important financial education programs were the "Bite of Reality" financial workshops that help young teens understand the basics of finances and managing budgets, as well as the "Borrow and Save" small-dollar loan product benefiting low-and-moderate income consumers.
"I have spent my entire career in the credit union industry and truly believe in the important role we play in supporting the growth of our local communities and the financial freedom of our members," Rives said.
She added: “It was such an honor to receive this recognition from Congressman Campbell. His continued dedication over the years to fiscal restraint and responsible budgeting is something we at SkyOne also believe in, making it core to our mission as a credit union when serving our members.”
