Celebrating Harvard Heroes

Jul 5, 2019 11:12:00 AM

At an awards ceremony hosted by President Bacow on June 13, HUECU members from across Harvard University were among the 61 staff recognized with a 2019 Harvard Hero award.

Despite soaking rain, the ceremony was standing room only; filled to the brim with colleagues, family, and friends supporting our exemplary community members.

We congratulate all the heroes and we are especially delighted to announce that well over half of this year’s cohort are HUECU members!
Please join us in congratulating the following HUECU members on this very special recognition! We’re proud to be your on-campus, not-for-profit financial institution. Thank you for your heroic contributions to our community.
