It is with great joy, and a tinge of sadness at the same time, that we bid our friend, Arlene LeBlanc, adieu as she retires from Advancial Federal Credit Union. Arlene has served as an outstanding example of professionalism and has been driven to make a difference here in Acadiana through her many business and volunteer activities throughout the years. Upper Lafayette has been so fortunate to have Arlene and Advancial Federal Credit Union as loyal members for the past several years, and we look forward to a continued relationship with Advancial’s new Community Development Manager, Lacey Maynor.
