In Memory of

US Representative Alcee Hastings

Hastings was the longest-serving member of Florida’s congressional delegation as well as a beloved member of our Credit Union. He befriended many throughout BrightStar, including our long-term board member, Dr. Dorothy Orr. Hastings was prevalent throughout the State as a civil rights activist and judge with nearly thirty years in congress. He fought to create opportunities to lift up working families, communities of color, children and immigrants.

The family of the late congressman released the following statement: “He lived a life of triumph over adversity and his brilliance and compassion was felt amongst his constituents, colleagues, the nation and the world… He will be dearly missed but his legacy and fighting spirit will forever live on.”

BrightStar is proud to have served such an inspirational man and will continue to honor his many accomplishments.
