King PictureOliver King, Magnolia FCU, has been honored by being inducted into the Credit Union House Hall of Leaders.  The induction ceremony was held March 18, 2012 in Washington, D. C. during the Governmental Affairs Conference.

King began his credit union career in 1949 as treasurer of Jackson VA FCU (Magnolia FCU), and currently continues his service as a volunteer for the credit union.  King was inducted into the Mississippi Credit Union Hall of Fame in 2005.

"Credit union work is part missionary work as you have the opportunity to help people develop a habit of regular savings, make loans in times of crises and encourage members to better manage their resources," wrote King while reflecting on his credit union career in 1999.

"With more than 60 years of service to credit unions that still continues to this day, it is easy to see how incredibly deserving Oliver is of this special honor," said Charles Elliott, MSCUA President/CEO & Credit Union House Chairman.

The Credit Union House Hall of Leaders was introduced to provide lasting recognition for credit union leaders whose commitment has made a significant impact on the credit union movement at the local, state, or national level.

Members of the Hall of Leaders have shown commitment that inspires others in the credit union movement. Their names remind all who visit Credit Union House of the many individuals who have given their time to perpetuate the credit union movement and who remain committed to the values and mission on which credit unions were founded.
