FSA Clients Selected As Finalists For National Award
North Little Rock, AR - For their outstanding commitment toward repaying their debts, John and Allison Maness, clients of Family Service Agency's Consumer Credit Counseling Service, were named Graduate Clients of the Year Award finalists in the National Foundation for Consumer Credit's (NFCC) 1998 Pace Awards.
This award recognizes the clients who best demonstrate leadership and commitment to repay their debts; conquering obstacles to do so; partnering with the Agency to educate others; and making enduring lifestyle and spending changes to become smart money managers. John and Allison overcame unemployment, medical expenses, and general credit card extension to completely pay off their debts. They have also been able to purchase a car, a home, and even a business. The Manesses were chosen from nominees from more than 200 NFCC-member agencies nationwide.
"The Manesses provide a strong model for success in our clients. They went from pawning belongings and severely reducing food allowances to being completely debt-free and are now living the American Dream," said Wanda Jackson-Cohns, director of FSA's Consumer Credit Counseling Service. "We are proud that John and Allison have been selected as finalists for the Graduate Clients of the Year Award."
Pace Award winners were announced at the NFCC annual conference in Miami, FL on September 16, 1998. FSA is a member of the National Foundation for Consumer Credit, which serves as the umbrella group for 1,510 credit counseling offices across the country. NFCC is the Nation's oldest and largest nonprofit organization providing education, debt repayment and counseling services on a variety of consumer issues.
