Meet Savvy

Savvy, the Sandhill Crane
FNCU’s mascot!

Savvy stopped in Nebraska during migration, and loved it so much, she decided to stay!

“When I saw First Nebraska was looking for a mascot, I knew I’d be the perfect fit! I represent good fortune, happiness and longevity. I am also a symbol of peace, wisdom, fidelity and goodwill to others, which are all characteristics of the credit union philosophy of “people helping people,” and complements FNCU’s company values.

Plus, Nebraska is a special place for Sandhill Cranes. Each year, 400,000–600,000 of us stop to rest and refuel in Nebraska during our migration.”

I’m Flat Savvy, and I’d like to travel with you! You can take me on vacation, to the Zoo, to see the Sandhill Crane migration, to other countries, or anywhere!

I’d love it if you took a picture of me at all these fabulous places, and shared them with First Nebraska!

Post the pictures on social media (and tag First Nebraska Credit Union), or email them to!*

Savvy’s design was inspired by native Nebraska artist, Paula Warner. Paula designed six original pen-and-ink drawings for FNCU, and each of our branches has one on display.
