Akira Jacobs | 2015 Protégé

“I am so thankful to everyone at SCFCU and the league for this valuable opportunity. The CUaware Protégé program has instilled a confidence in me as a young professional.

I am excited to know that the leaders of the credit union movement are willing to mentor me to become a future leader.”

Micah Smith | 2014 Protégé

“I am very thankful that I was encouraged to participate in CUaware’s Protégé Competition. The entire experience has been incredibly rewarding. The strength of the program comes from its concentration on bringing those of us who are new to the credit union movement together with established leaders for a mutually beneficial experience. This concentration is worked out through CUaware’s mentoring program, in which all participants of the competition are partnered with a mentor.”
