Marv Strom, who has served on the Great Falls Teacher’s FCU board for the past 30 years, was honored for his dedication and contributions to his credit union and the Montana credit union movement when he was named the Mitch Reed Volunteer of the Year for 2011.
In those 30 years, Strom has contributed immensely to his credit union, the credit union movement, and his community. He has held several board positions, including one term as Vice Chair, two as Chair as well as a number of ad hoc and standing committee positions. Most notable, however, he has served as Treasurer for at least 12 years, using the knowledge and experience he honed as a high-school math teacher to make sure his fellow directors have the information and tools they need to understand the credit union’s financial performance and overall position.
In addition to serving his credit union well, he has a long history of involvement in local, state, and regional credit union activities as well as service to his community and church including the youth orchestra, high school talent show, “Sons of Pioneers,” and Supplemental Food Commodity Program.
“Marv’s ongoing contributions to his credit union, fellow board members, and community are incredible,” said Tracie Kenyon, Network President/CEO. “It’s truly an honor to be able to recognize him as this year’s Mitch Reed Volunteer of the Year.”
