The 61st Annual Meeting was business as usual with an addition of much due respect to Dr. Donald W. Mikesell.
Dr. Donald W. Mikesell (Don) served on the Board of Directors for 30 years, the last 26 as Chairmen of the Board. Mr. Glassburn, President/CEO, commended and recognized him for his contribution to the success of the Ball State Federal Credit Union. When Don joined the Board, the Credit Union was $20 million in assets. Since, we’ve grown to over $90 million in assets and nearly 15,000 members.
It should be noted that Don wanted no celebration! How could we not show our appreciation? With as little celebration as we could, Don was presented a framed and signed resolution with a keepsake mantel clock as a thank you for his dedicated, unwavering service.
A video clip of the meeting is available to view. The text of the resolution for Don is provided below, too. Please feel free to stop by and see the framed version at our main office.
Thank you, Don, for your tremendous service to Ball State Federal Credit Union!
