Tucson-based Hughes Federal Credit Union announced it reached its 100,000th member-owner, after seeing its membership rate double in size since 2009.
The 100,000th member-owner, Maria Reyes, was presented a $1,000 check on July 29 when she opened an account at Hughes’ Wetmore branch, the credit union said in a news release.
To mark the milestone, Hughes will be giving away prizes until Aug. 19 through its Facebook page: Facebook.com/HughesFCU.
