Cierra Faubert, a member service representative with Heritage Trust Federal Credit Union (HTFCU), was named the Lowcountry Chapter’s CUaware Protégé on Tuesday, October 30, 2018. Faubert will go on to the CUaware Protégé Competition finals at the LAUNCH Conference Jan. 31 – Feb. 1, 2019 in Charlotte, NC.
Faubert and fellow candidate Chelsea King (SC Federal CU) represented their respective credit unions at the Lowcountry Chapter event at the North Charleston Marriott in N. Charleston, SC. Each contestant made a five-minute presentation in front of a judging panel and credit union professionals in attendance. The contestants were also scored on a one-page essay that they submitted as part of the application process.
Faubert joined HTFCU in 2016 and aspires to become a branch manager so she can continue membership growth and employee talent development at the credit union. She is a graduate of Plattsburgh State University with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary/Special Ed K-6 and minor in Mathematics. Faubert is a recipient of the credit union’s All-Star Award and is currently enrolled in HTFCU’s Lighthouse University, which provides continuous learning opportunities for all credit union employees.
In her spare time, she enjoys working on community outreach projects for the credit union that make a difference for others and spending quality time with her family.
She joins Columbia Chapter Protégé Amy Coggins, Upstate Chapter Protégé Meaghan King, and Tarheel Chapter Protégé Barbara Mojica Arzate in the lineup of finalists moving forward in the competition, with others to be determined in the weeks ahead. Click here to see the upcoming events.
