MAPLE GROVE, Minn., May 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Local member-owned cooperative TopLine Federal Credit Union vice president of marketing and communications Vicki Roscoe Erickson was named Outstanding Volunteer of the Year by the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation Scholarship Council (MnCUN FSC).  The award was given to Erickson April 6, during the MnCUN 2018 Annual Conference held in Bloomington, Minn.

The Minnesota Credit Union Foundation Scholarship Council (FSC) strives to build credit union awareness and strengthen member relationships through its scholarship program. According to the council, the award is given “in recognition of an outstanding volunteer for individual achievement and service.  This individual actively supports and creates programs which build credit union awareness and strengthen member relationships.” The FSC annual scholarship program is made possible through its annual fundraising events, which include a networking event in January and silent auction in April at the MnCUN annual meeting.

“I am honored to be awarded Volunteer of the Year by the Foundation Scholarship Council team members,” said Erickson, who also serves as president of the TopLine Credit Union Foundation. “This award is truly a shared effort by all council members, for their countless contributions, wealth of experience and genuine passion to help support individuals pursuing post secondary education.  I’m proud to be a part of such a remarkable, dedicated committee that assists Minnesota credit union members in reaching their education goals.”
