Texas Trust wins Dora Maxwell Award from Cornerstone Credit Union League

ARLINGTON, TX (September 24, 2018)Texas Trust Credit Union received the top honor from the Cornerstone Credit Union League with the 2018 Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Community Service Award for credit unions with more than $1 billion in assets.

Texas Trust earned the award for its Community Unity Team, which was created to increase employee engagement in community outreach. The team’s mission is to be agents of positive change by motivating, equipping, and encouraging employees to make a difference. Texas Trust will now represent Texas in the national credit union recognition competition.

The employee-led Community Unity Team was recognized for its success at increasing employee volunteerism. In 2017, employees invested more than 1,100 hours of service and the team achieved 100 percent employee participation in community service. The largest effort involved an all-hands service project benefitting Mission Arlington, a local charity that feeds, clothes, mentors, and nurtures the hearts and spirits of those in need.

“Receiving this award reinforces that the Community Unity Team is following in the footsteps of Dora Maxwell herself,” said Pamela Stephens, executive vice president of Texas Trust and sponsor of the Community Unity Team. “This team has worked to create an employee culture that puts people first and emphasizes the importance of service, which is what Dora Maxwell did unceasingly as she worked on behalf of the poor.”

National winners of the Dora Maxwell competition will be announced by the Credit Union National Association at the end of October.
