BHFCU Mortgage Lender Inducted into Statewide Hall of Fame
South Dakota Home Builders Association recently inducted Candice Menke, Black Hills Federal Credit Union (BHFCU) Mortgage Loan Originator, into their Hall of Fame in Sioux Falls. Earlier this year, Candice was inducted into the Home Builders Association of the Sioux Empire’s Hall of Fame. She has also received an associate of the year award on local and state levels. In addition, she’s had opportunities to represent the state and BHFCU at the national level.
Candice graduated from SDSU and began her career in financial services in 1997. After spending nearly 20 years at local banks and in corporate banking, Candice was interested in getting back to her passion, community lending. The timing was ideal. Candice joined the BHFCU team nearly four years ago when BHFCU first began serving Sioux Falls.
