This month, the members of the Minnesota Credit Unions for Kids Committee (CU4Kids) and the Foundation Scholarship Council (FSC) received awards for outstanding service. Committee members were honored at the Minnesota Credit Union Network Annual Conference April 6 at the Radisson Blue Mall of America in Bloomington.


The FSC strives to build credit union brand awareness and strengthen member relationships through its scholarship program. The FSC annual scholarship program is made possible through its annual silent auction.  Since 1997, the FSC has reviewed 14,905 applications and awarded $176,500 in scholarships to 315 credit union members.


Vicki Roscoe Erickson of TopLine Federal Credit Union was named FSC Volunteer of the Year. Vicki is Vice President of Marketing & Communications and joined the FSC in 2012.


The Minnesota chapter of Credit Unions for Kids raises funds for Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare, a Children’s Miracle Network hospital. Minnesota CU4Kids has raised over $3 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since 1997.


Kim Peterson received the award for Minnesota CU4Kids Outstanding Volunteer. Kim is a Marketing Specialist at SouthPoint Financial Credit Union and joined the committee in 2015. Along with serving as co-chair of the committee, Kim heads several of the subcommittees.

“Both the Foundation Scholarship Council and Minnesota Credit Unions for Kids represent the credit union philosophies of cooperation and people helping people,” said Minnesota Credit Union Foundation Executive Director Andrea Molnau. “Vicki and Kim have gone above and beyond by devoting their time and talent to ensuring their respective committees exceed their goals. On behalf of the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation, I would like to thank and congratulate both women.”
