Greenville Federal Credit Union adds new mascot with goal of educating students

GREENVILLE, SC (August 11, 2016) — Greenville Federal Credit Union is excited to introduce its new mascot, Clark, a young, financially-savvy owl. Clark is a dependable, trustworthy, and helpful high school student that truly cares about his community. By using Clark to engage a younger segment of Greenville County, the credit union hopes to provide more opportunities for financial literacy and start an open conversation with students about spending and saving. Clark will represent the credit union in the community, at school events, and at many credit union sponsored functions. Clark will make his first appearance on Friday, August 19th, at Westcliffe Elementary School.

“When nine Greenville County School teachers came together to create our credit union, they had a vision and passion for education and financial literacy, “ explained Paul Hughes, credit union President. “Clark wants to help students and adults of all ages to better understand the importance of saving money. He knows that by doing this he will make our community even better. ”

Founded in 1968 by Greenville County Schools, Greenville Federal Credit Union remains dedicated to the educators of Greenville County and passionate about financial literacy for students. To learn more about Clark or request an appearance at a community or company event, please visit
