Gary Schoepp

2012 Mitch Reed Volunteer of the Year

Montana credit unions honored Richland Federal Credit Union (RFCU) Board Member Gary Schoepp by naming him Montana’s Credit Union Volunteer of the Year. This award recognizes Schoepp’s 25 years of unswerving commitment and countless contributions to both RFCU and the Sidney community.

“Gary is the true definition of a volunteer,” said RFCU Manager Kevin Mayer, who was instrumental in nominating Schoepp for this prestigious award. “We are thankful and fortunate to have him volunteering his time on the RFCU board for the past 25 years."

As a RFCU board member, Schoepp donates his time and expertise. For the past 25 years, he has provided leadership to the credit union in good times and not-so-good economic times. He hasn’t been afraid to tackle tough issues or to help his credit union expand to better serve its members. And, he has done so with skill and grace.

In addition to his tremendous service to his credit union, Schoepp is active in the Sidney community – serving in leadership roles at the local Chamber of Commerce, Kiwanis Club, the Richland Economic Development Corporation, and on the Sidney School Board. This has given him a deep understanding of and appreciation for the ways in which the credit union plays an important role in the local community.

As a result, he takes his responsibilities on the credit union board very seriously. As Schoepp once explained to Senator Max Baucus, “When I see RFCU members in the grocery store, I have to be able to look them in the eye and account for my actions as a credit union board member.”

“Gary’s integrity, honesty, and commitment are priceless,” said Tracie Kenyon, President/CEO of the Montana Credit Union Network (Network). “It’s not just RFCU that has benefitted – so have RFCU members, the Sidney community, and all of Montana’s credit unions.”
