Marion man advances to Top 15 in national credit union competition

Daniel BradshawDaniel Bradshaw, Business Development Officer at Marion Community Credit Union, recently advanced to the Top 15 in the CUES Next Top Credit Union Exec competition.

“I’m thrilled to move forward with my project,” he says. “The support I received from the Marion community was incredible.”

His project is the development of financial education lesson plans for kids infusing theatre, creative writing, and comedy. Now the remaining competitors will refine their projects and write a blog post about their progress. A panel of judges will then narrow the field to the Top 5. These individuals will create a second video and give a presentation at a national conference in October before a live audience (both in-person and online) as well as a panel of judges. An overall winner will be selected based on both online voting and the judges’ scores.

“There’s a good amount of work ahead of me,” Bradshaw admits, “but I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
