Aspire Credit Union observes 85 years

Aspire Credit Union celebrated its 85 years of service to the Minot and surrounding communities with a birthday party on Friday at its Minot office.

Over the last eight and a half decades, the credit union has seen great growth and change within its organization.

In commemoration of this milestone, the staff has committed to performing 85 acts of kindness within the community they serve over the next 30 days.

“Giving back is part of the foundation this organization was built on. I am proud to see our staff dedicated to the community and the members we serve.” said Mindee Kohlman, president and CEO of Aspire Credit Union.

Aspire Credit Union, a nonprofit, member-owned financial institution, has served the Minot area communities since 1937. It is a community-chartered credit union serving Bottineau, McHenry, McLean, Mountrail, Renville and Ward Counties.

On Jan. 4, 1937, Aspire Community Federal Credit Union was issued its original charter by NCUA as the Great Northern Employees Minot Credit Union. The name was changed to Tran Em Federal Credit Union on Aug. 27, 1970. On Dec. 29, 1986, the credit union became known as Prairie Federal Credit Union. In the fall of 1989, the credit union moved from Main Street to its current location at 1430 S. Broadway. On Feb. 4, 2020, the credit union became known as Aspire Community Federal Credit Union.
