“The Minnesota Family Involvement Council has supported the youth of Minnesota and their continuing educational dreams for many years,” said Paul Knorr, president/CEO at Accentra Credit Union. “We are honored to partner with them and join with them in celebrating the accomplishments of Molly Mickelson.”
