Credit Union Magazine recently announced that Tom Williams, senior vice president of the Mississippi Credit Union Association, will be honored as the 2018 Credit Union Hero of the Year.
The Credit Union Hero of the Year award, sponsored by Trellance, recognizes those who serve as examples for the entire movement through their service, advocacy and commitment to credit union ideals. Credit Union Magazine readers selected McWilliams by voting at news.cuna.org.
“Tom McWilliams is the consummate lifelong learner,” said Ann Hayes Peterson, CUNA’s vice president of publishing and editor-in-chief. “His contributions have influenced the development of credit union managers and leaders throughout his state and the movement – and always with the goal of changing members’ lives for the better.”
McWilliams said he was “honored and truly humbled to receive this recognition and to know I have made a difference.”
“Across the decades of my career, I have been blessed to know and build an amazing credit union family,” he said. “I love what I do, and my motivation has always been simple: A desire to offer the best professional growth opportunities to help other become heroes for their own members.”
