“We are very honored to one of the first mid-size businesses in Burnsville to be presented with this award,” said Firefly Credit Union President/CEO Bill Raker, “This honor is not the achievement of one person but all Firefly employees living up to our Core Values in all of their day-to-day interactions with both our members and their fellow coworkers.”
