Former UCCU CEO receives honorary degree

Jeff Sermon, UCCU’s former President and CEO, received an Honorary Doctorate of Business from Utah Valley University as part of the school’s 77th commencement on May 3, 2018.

During the commencement, UVU Trustee Karen Acerson cited Sermon’s 42 years of service to this community and dedication to building UCCU, successfully leading the credit union through the great recession and through significant asset growth, from $400 million to $1.2 billion and membership growth from 91,000 to 170,000 members, while also highlighting his support of the university:

“Sermon fostered a deep and lasting relationship with UVU,” said Acerson, “including the development and implementation of the PlusCard student ID program and the Money Management Resource Center, which provides peer- to-peer financial counseling for UVU students, as well as financial support for buildings and programs across campus.”
