Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union Employees Graduate From Leadership Programs
LOWELL – Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union is proud to announce that two of our employees graduated earlier this month from the Lowell Public Matters program and the Merrimack Valley Sandbox Initiative.
Mariann O’Brien, Assistant Vice President-Branch Operations, completed the 2011-2012 Public Matters program, a leadership and civic engagement initiative of The Lowell Plan. Public Matters is a rigorous program designed to foster and enhance the knowledge and skills of emerging leaders in Lowell.
Jose Pino, Virtual Banking Specialist, completed the 2011-2012 Merrimack Valley Sandbox Initiative, which is designed to build leadership and entrepreneurship in people and organizations. Its goal is to help graduates turn ideas into action, create strong networks, increase collaboration and build teams, encourage social responsibility, and create new ventures in any business form.
“We are very proud of the commitment Mariann and Jose made to Public Matters and the Sandbox Initiative,” said Mark S. Cochran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union. “We know both Mariann and Jose will use the knowledge they have gained to continue to help others and to make a difference in the community.”
Ms. O’Brien and Mr. Pino both remained strongly dedicated to the programs throughout the year, volunteering considerable personal time to excelling in the two initiatives.
