-Candice C., 2021 Employee of the Year 

 

When I first started with Lone Star Credit Union everyone would tell me “we are all family here!” I ended up living this statement personally with LSCU. Since my first day, I have felt so welcome. I have never worked for a company that genuinely cared for their employees and put aside their own business needs. It is amazing to work for a company that really gives back to their employees in many ways. I was very fortunate to be given a chance to become a part of the LSCU team. My time with LSCU has made me want to keep working hard and do the best I can as an individual to represent the company well and help our members feel valued for choosing us.
