    American Airlines Federal Credit Union Announces the Third Grand Prize Winner of Its 2007 Road to Success Sweepstakes

    American Airlines Federal Credit Union (AA Credit Union) today announced the third Grand Prize Winner of the 2007 Road to Success Sweepstakes, an online promotion offering members the opportunity to win a new vehicle by opening one or multiple new accounts or products. The sweepstakes began July 1 and continues through Nov. 30 with two additional winners yet to be determined.

    Pam Brunner of Arlington, Texas, is the third Grand Prize Winner following Kenneth R. Phelps of San Angelo, Texas, and Barbara Ramallo of Hialeah, Fla. Brunner is the proud recipient of a new Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab truck. Brunner was randomly selected from more than 60,000 sweepstakes entries.

    Brunner, an AA Credit Union member since January 2000, was thrilled to hear the exciting news in a telephone call from John M. Tippets, CEO, AA -- Credit Union. Brunner will celebrate her 12th anniversary as an American Airlines employee this year and is currently employed as a Customer Service Instructor at Flagship University in Fort Worth, Texas. Brunner was taking a break from teaching class when she received the call from Tippets.

    "Oh my gosh, I'm so excited! Thank you!" Brunner told Tippets. She said she screamed and jumped up and down as she announced the news to her class a few minutes later. "I saw the vehicles parked in the Flagship Branch parking lot and decided to enter the sweepstakes, because I really, really needed a new car and I had a feeling I would win," added Brunner.

    "Our members have until Nov. 30 for a chance to win a new vehicle just like Ms. Brunner," said Tippets. "The goal of this sweepstakes has been to drive awareness of the great benefits of Credit Union membership and we want to remind members that those who have not yet won are still eligible to win in the final two drawings."
