AM1250's Michelle Sawatzky invited Emma Lafreniere to stop by the studio this morning to congratulate her on her National Young Leader Award which is handed out by Credit Union Central of Canada. Emma spends her days at the Steinbach Credit Union IN Steinbach and was one of 5 award winners!!
The criteria for the award is that you need to be 35 years of younger and a young leader who has shown exceptional contribution to their community or collaboration or innovation.
Emma is the manager of Loss Prevention at SCU. She works on the Risk Management Team and has been at SCU for the past 15 years. Her future looks bright at SCU and she is especially excited about the Sabres Credit Union project, which she showcased at the conference in Halifax where she was given her award. The project promotes financial literacy and creating new employees and leaders of the future!!
Way to go Emma -- we are proud to call you one of our own!!!
