Crane Credit Union recently awarded the fifth annual Lenora Whitehead Service Award to Laurie Wagner, Member Service Representative II at the Credit Union’s Linton branch.

Lenora Whitehead worked as a part-time teller at the Washington branch from 2002 until she retired in 2014. Unfortunately, soon after retirement, Mrs. Whitehead passed away. Those who knew and worked with her are well aware of the extraordinary member service she provided on a daily basis. Mrs. Whitehead always displayed a great attitude. She could be described as selfless and dependable and was a woman of character and integrity. The Lenora Whitehead Service Award is awarded each year to an employee who demonstrates all of these same qualities.

The winner of the award is also able to select a charity or organization of their choice for a $1,000 donation. Laurie has chosen Night to Shine, an event created by the Tim Tebow Foundation. Laurie attends Linton First Christian Church and they will be hosting a Night to Shine celebration. Laurie is very active in her church volunteering with activities such as the community Thanksgiving dinner, working with the Linton Food Pantry, teaching vacation bible school, and portraying Mary in her church’s Winter Walk live nativity scene.
