Greenville Federal Credit Union to continue recognizing “Community Heroes” through 2021.

by Catherine James, VP Marketing and Brand Strategy

Greenville Federal Credit Union and The Greenville News will continue the “Community Heroes Greenville” initiative through 2021 as a way of spotlighting the generous, noble and unselfish work of those among us who work tirelessly — often behind the scenes — to make our community a better place. 

Each month nominations will be collected for candidates that work in health care, public safety, education, the military, nonprofit agencies and the business world, the religious sector, entertainment or athletics. They can be a student or a young child or a retiree, etc. The selected "Hero" will be profiled in the Greenville News and recognized at a County Council meeting. If you know of someone that should be recognized feel free to nominate them by sending an email to: In your nomination, please explain why the person you are recommending is a community hero. Include what category they should be recognized for, and your contact information.

The credit union is pleased to continue partnering with the Greenville News on an initiative that aligns so closely with its Core Values, and looks forward to recognizing individuals who give their time and resources to make the Greenville community better.

The more than $320 million credit union was founded by nine teachers from the School District of Greenville County as an educator’s credit union in 1968. In 2001, the credit union approved a conversion to a community-based charter to serve anyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school in Greenville County. The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), an agency of the federal government, insures all accounts up to $250,000.
