LEAGUES HONOR CU LEADER
The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues have named Vernon Elliott the 2013 recipient of the Unsung Hero Award, which honors individuals within the credit union industry with at least 20 years of service who have made significant contributions in the community. Credit union icon Richard Myles Johnson—who has known Elliott since they were in the Marines in the early 1970s and who led him to a career in the industry—presented Elliott with the award on Oct. 18. Throughout his career, Elliott was with San Diego County CU (his first credit union job), TRW Systems CU, Cal Bear CU, Tiger FCU, Western CU, Raincross CU, and Pacific Community CU (where he retired in 2009).
