Beacon Credit Union has served member’s in the Lynchburg area for 74 years, striving to help member’s achieve their financial goals and dreams. At Tuesday night’s 74th annual meeting, CEO Greg McConville and Chairman of the Board Kelly Kurtz highlighted how the Credit Union not only assists our members with auto loans, mortgage loans and great credit card products, but we also strive to help the community around us.
Here are just a few ways that we are involved with our Community…
At the annual meeting on Tuesday we awarded the following scholarships for 2013...
- The Garland Huffman Scholarship went to Jesse Best, who plans to attend VCU in Richmond VA.
- The Thomas R. Turpin Jr Scholarship went to Emma Green, who plans to attend American University in Washington DC.
- The Hugh E. Wills Scholarship went to Robert N. Quels, who plans to attend Liberty University in Lynchburg VA.
We would like to offer our congratulation to all those who received Scholarships and also thank everyone who submitted an application.We had some really talented participants and it was a difficult decision just choosing three.
We helped build brand new scoreboards for three area high school… Brookville, EC Glass and Jefferson Forest.
Beacon Basketball Classic
Early in 2013, we were able to donate over $21,000 to the Children’s Miracle Network that we raised from the 2012 Beacon Basketball Classic… This was our 9th year doing the Basketball Classic and to date we have raised over $100,000. We are looking forward to our 10th anniversary and have some exciting plans in store for the event.
We assisted CASA (Court Appoint Special Advocates) in their annual Heart and Sole Women’s Event. We are also planning some other exciting events with the CASA organization.
Local Business Growth
We have developed a small business lending department in our credit union. We hope to be able to offer opportunity for people in our community with dreams and goals to grow their businesses and succeed.
