About the Sandra B. Neves Scholarship

The Sandra B. Neves Scholarship is named in honor of former Chief Executive Officer, Sandra Neves who retired after thirty-six years of service to Fitzsimons Credit Union. This scholarship represents her commitment to life-long learning and her belief that education is essential toward self-fulfillment.

Sandra started as a teller at Fitzsimons in 1981. Within a short period of time, Sandra was asked to work in other areas of the credit union and she was granted a scholarship from the Colorado Credit Union Association to attend three years of Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Management School where she earned high honors. By the time she completed her CUNA Management certification she was promoted to senior vice president of Fitzsimons Credit Union. In 1989, she took over the role of chief executive officer. Because she had never completed her bachelor of science degree due to earlier travels as a military spouse and the time it took to earn various credit union credentials, Sandra enrolled in night school to earn her BS in Business Administration.

Ms. Neves believes that the backbone of any accomplishment is education, no matter how one defines success. She does not measure her success by becoming a CEO, but rather by the opportunities she was given by supporters, mentors and educators, and by the fact she was fortunate to work in a career she loved. She has coached and mentored many, and she wants to support any person who desires to work hard and learn. This scholarship represents her commitment to education.
