Young Professionals Influencing Credit Union Industry


Staff Report

Three of Delaware’s rising young credit union professionals have been selected to serve on the DE Credit Union Leagues Young Professionals Network (YPN). Ms. Cheri Bryant, Ms. Nikkia Sykes and Mr. Nick Little, all whom are employed at Dover Federal Credit Union, are rising stars who are making valuable contributions to the industry. As a result of their influence as a young professional, they will represent Dover Federal at the 2016 DCUL Convention in April.

Nick and Cheri stated, “It felt great to be honored and acknowledged by Dover Federal and specifically recognized by our CEO David Clendaniel. As a Young Professional, we are looking forward to collaborating with peers and developing skills that can directly empower our future career opportunities.” While fellow YPN Nikkia Sykes has been a member of the DCUL YP Network for more than a year, she has been appointed to the YPN Steering Committee. With this position, Nikkia is hoping to serve as a voice for Millennials. “Credit unions compliment the way Millennials think. We are family oriented, we want personalized service and we want to make a positive difference for others. I am looking forward to help steer the influence credit unions have amongst my peers.”
