Notice to our Membership
For those of you that may not be aware, our president, Richard G. Blue, passed away on July 5, 2021. We know you would join us in sending our deepest sympathies to his wife, Shawn, and daughters, Coleen and Crystal, as well as all the members of his family.
How does one close a chapter of a CEO/president who gave 36 years to the White Eagle Credit Union? What words accurately express our gratitude to the man that led this credit union from a tiny office on State Street in Augusta to an organization of three full-service locations in Augusta, El Dorado and Newton?
We don’t have them. But we believe that collectively as a board of directors, employees and members of the White Eagle Credit Union, we could fill pages in his honor. We are grateful and are determined to carry out the legacy of not only Rick Blue, but all those who have come before him for the last 86 years. From the humble beginnings of seven men meeting under an oak tree in Augusta in 1935, to what we are today.
The Board of Directors, in accordance with the Succession Plan of White Eagle Credit Union, has named Jennifer L. Pazzie as Interim President. She will continue with her duties as Chief Financial Officer as well as the presidency at this time. Our Management Team has over 175 combined years of experience with this credit union. They are up for the task and look towards the future with the combined resolution of fulfilling our mission statement of providing “dedicated and outstanding personal service, the latest technology and products, and empowering our members to improve their financial well-being.”
