ICU Foundation Scholarship for Don Edwards
Contribution Deadline March 1, 2013
As you probably know by now, Don Edwards is retiring from the Illinois Credit Union League after more than 39 years of service, effective March 1, 2013.  The League is establishing an ICU Foundation commemorative scholarship in Don’s name to be presented at this year’s annual convention.  If you, your credit union, or chapter would like to make a contribution in honor of Don, please send your share draft made payable to the ICU Foundation, with a notation that it is to be used for his scholarship fund, no later than March 1, 2013.  We believe this will be a really great way to celebrate Don’s retirement and acknowledge his many years of dedicated service to the League, the Service Corp, CUPAC and the credit unions of Illinois.
