About Harvey Bakke
The two $1,000 Harvey Bakke Scholarships were named in honor of a long-time Minnesota Family Involvement Council member, Harvey Bakke. Harvey served on the FIC Board for 12 years. His dedication to the credit union community was extraordinary. A board member for the Red Lake Co-op FCU in Red Lake Falls, MN, Harvey gave his time, knowledge and support not only to the board of his credit union but to the FIC as well.
