ODESSA -- Southwest 66 Credit Union is being honored by the Cornerstone Credit Union League's Juntos Avenzamos designation.
It translates to "together we advance" and it's awarded to credit unions who show an outstanding commitment to serving the needs of the hispanic community, which, according to a credit union spokesperson, has doubled over the past few years.
They celebrated the award today by having a mariachi band, and appearances were made by Odessa mayor, David Turner, and the Odessa Chamber of Commerce.
"We want the public to know that we're here to serve hispanics, and we're here to serve everybody else. So thank you for being a part of this and we want to celebrate this and we want you to feel proud of what we've accomplished here today."
Southwest 66 is the first business in the Permian Basin to receive this honor since it's creation.
During the ceremony, the league presented Southwest 66 Credit Union with a Juntos Avenzamos flag.
