America's Christian Credit Union CEO Inducted into Adoption Hall Of Fame
The National Council for Adoption (NCFA) inducted President and CEO of America's Christian Credit Union (ACCU), Mendell L. Thompson, into the Adoption Hall of Fame at the NCFA Great Expectations Gala in Washington, DC on November 5.
Thompson was recognized for his visionary leadership in spearheading the award-winning Adoption Program that has resulted in nearly 1,300 children finding their forever home. He has also been a strong advocate for additional adoption benefits for credit union's employees, which has earned ACCU a top spot on the 100 Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces.
Upon receiving the award, Thompson explained, "I believe this award is a reflection of God's work through ACCU in the field of adoption, and we continually strive to do more. Around the world, so many of God's children are still waiting to find their forever loving family. We will not stop working to advocate for these children."
Chuck Johnson, NCFA President/CEO, in speaking to Thompson and ACCU added, "You continue to go above and beyond in your tireless efforts to give children the miracle of a loving family. We thank you for joining us in the commitment to change the lives of children and families around the world."
