SnoCope Vice President of Lending Wins 2023 CUDE Scholarship
Posted by Alex Robinson on April 19, 2023
Dustin Rohde, vice president of lending at SnoCope Credit Union in Everett, Washington, is the latest winner of a scholarship from Prodigy, the leading core processing and private cloud Credit Union Service Organization, to attend the 2023 CU Development Educators program in Madison, Wisconsin.
The National Credit Union Foundation runs the program, which aims to build awareness of the development issues that prevent people from achieving financial freedom — and how credit unions are uniquely positioned to address them.
“Financial literacy has always been important, and our members look to us to be the experts,” Rohde said. “I am certain that this program will provide me with the skills I need to better educate and serve my members.”
Prodigy’s third and final scholarship for attendance at Western CUNA Management School will be open for applications later in 2023. The company sent Tina Wickes, vice president of lending at Columbine Federal Credit Union in Centennial, Colorado, to CUNA’s Governmental Affairs Conference on Feb. 26 in Washington, D.C.
“We all need education to mature and develop, but not everyone has access to it,” Rohde said. “The educational opportunities Prodigy provides are a huge asset to both their partner credit unions and the credit union movement as a whole. This genuinely supports the CU philosophy of ‘people helping people.’”
More than 2,500 people from dozens of countries have graduated from the U.S. CUDE program since its launch in 1982.
