On Sunday, 15 October the Grenada Cooperative League Limited presented its ‘LIFETIME Award’ to Samuel Britton, recently retired General Manager of Grenada Union of Teachers Cooperative Credit Union.
The occasion was an impressive and memorable ‘Recognition and Thanksgiving Function’ held at Diamond, St Mark. The event was deliberately fitted into Grenada’s celebration of Credit Union Month, 2017.

Teachers’ grew to become the 2nd largest Credit Union in Grenada under Britton’s careful watch, guidance and nurturing.
Speaker after speaker referenced Britton’s motto that the member comes first. His capacity to listen and to propose solutions, as well as his spirit for good were identified among the unique qualities of the retired General Manager.
The citation for the award declares that the “Grenada Cooperative League Limited and its ten (10) Credit Union affiliates are deeply honoured to present this most prestigious LIFE TIME AWARD to Mr Samuel Brittion in recognition of his exemplary leadership and invaluable services to the Credit Union Movement in Grenada.”
