Last year North Star CCU host- ed the pilot program Seeds-2-Save. With the tagline "Teaching our youth to nurture their funds to a bountiful growth," area youth are paired with community leaders to become entrepreneurs. The initial participants included a group of girl scouts who Nanci chose to spearhead the project. They met with a Master Gardener who taught them how to grow their own garden to sell at the Grafton Farmers Market. The "Seeds Crew" then was able to grow seed and seedlings in a patch of land donated by Grafton Floral. Each step offers a valuable lesson from planting, growing, picking and selling their very own vegetables. "I wanted them to visually see their money grow," said Nanci.

This year, there are a group of cub scouts taking on the project with last year's participants serving as their mentors. The participants in the program split their earnings between a sav- ings account and a charity of their choice. The girls were able to donate their earnings to the VA hospital in Fargo, N.D. Nanci is excited about the lessons that this program is able to provide. She told the participants "it's going to be hard work." And stressed the importance to "be persistent and be- lieve in yourself." "Next year it will be open to 15 community children!" Nanci said. With each program geared to- ward community care North Star CCU is working toward spreading seeds of compassion. "Credit unions are based on a people helping people philosophy," Nanci said. "We want to help any- one in our community." Nanci's efforts to make the region a better place have not gone unno- ticed as just last week she was se- lected by Credit Union Magazine as a 2017 "Credit Union Rock Star." She will be featured among honorees from across the country in the na- tional publication this October.
