Quest Federal Credit Union would like to congratulate one of our own, Vickie Roszman, for the successful completion and graduation from the Hardin Leadership 2014 program. We are proud to have Vickie on our team and offer our congratulations to her. Well done Vickie!
Quest Federal Credit Union CEO, Matt Jennings, recently announced board approval of a $50,000 contribution to the Hilliker YMCA in the form of $10,000 annual payments for the next five years. The contribution will enable the Hilliker YMCA to make several large capital improvements over the five year period, including a new pool boiler, tuckpointing and replacing locker room floors with a non-slip epoxy finish.
“It is the belief of Quest Federal Credit Union’s Board of Directors and Management that we are obligated to help grow not only the financial health of the communities we serve but also the physical health of our communities to improve the quality of life for everyone. The YMCA is a tremendous organization that offers something for everyone in our community and we cannot think of a better investment than to help insure that the Hilliker YMCA is supported, healthy and growing so it can best serve our members and the community as a whole,” commented Mr. Jennings, CEO.
“We are very appreciative of Quest’s multi-year commitment to the Hilliker YMCA, stated CEO Jim Bouldin. “Nearly 8% of Logan Countians are members of the Hilliker YMCA. Our members serve as a strong representation of Logan County as a whole—rich and poor, young and old, weak and strong.”
The pool boiler, which has been in place for 14 years, is the first project set to be completed. A new model will be more efficient and will save on utility costs. The indoor pool at the Y benefits many locals. For example, over 376 swim lessons were taught last year, an increase of 140% over the previous year, with even more lessons on tap for this year. In addition, the Y swim team, called the Hilliker Heat, represents kids from nine school districts. Three Logan County schools, Bellefontaine, Ben Logan and Indian Lake hold high school swim team practices at the pool. In addition, the pool is used daily for senior swim classes, general swim classes, rehabilitation, in collaboration with Mary Rutan Hospital, and member workouts.
“This commitment from Quest Federal Credit Union, and other large multi-year commitments, enable the Hilliker YMCA to do a more efficient job of planning for large capital improvements. In addition, it is a more efficient way to do business for both parties, asking for contributions once every five years versus asking annually,” stated Marketing & Development Coordinator Candace Watson, “We hope to utilize this contribution model as much as possible moving forward.”
