One of the missions we have here at the credit union is to be active in the communities we serve. The big event in Southern Illinois this time of year is the HerrinFesta Italiana. Located in Herrin, Illinois, the Festa draws crowds from surrounding areas. This year, one of our senior tellers is competing in the HerrinFesta Scholarship Pageant and we couldn’t be more proud of her.
Andrea Middleton, a senior teller at our Giant City Road location, will compete with other women from Southern Illinois for the $5,000 scholarship award. SIU Credit Union is sponsoring Andrea in the pageant.
Andrea has won other crowns and we wish her well in her upcoming competition.
The event is 7 p.m., May 24, at the Herrin Civic Center.
