LaPlace – The Louisiana Credit Union League inducted LaNard Robinet into the Louisiana Credit Union Hall of Fame at the League’s 2011 Annual Meeting and Convention held August 4-6 at the Sheraton in Downtown New Orleans. The program was established in order to recognize the valuable leadership, commitment, dedication and contributions of credit union professionals and volunteers throughout the state.

 Over the past 11 years, Robinet, Community Relations Officer for St. John Parish Sheriff’s Office, has volunteered his time to Louisiana Federal Credit Union by serving on the Supervisory Committee and Board of Directors. He frequently performed above and beyond his duties as a volunteer. “LaNard would often contact me about members who he found out needed help or who were in dire circumstances,” stated Rhonda Hotard, Louisiana FCU President and CEO. “When he hears of individuals facing challenges or struggling with finances, he always thinks of the Credit Union first and how we may be able to help.”

 Robinet was recognized for giving his time, talent, and ingenuity in order to enhance and strengthen the credit union movement. Prior to his secular career and credit union involvement, Robinet spent four years in the United States Air Force and obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Xavier University and a Masters degree +30 hours in Supervision and Administration from Southeastern Louisiana University.
