(N. CHARLESTON, S.C.) – June 28, 2011 – Volunteer leaders, executive team members and employees of South Carolina Federal Credit Union broke ground for the credit union’s forthcoming modular branch on Glenn McConnell Parkway—located at 3460 Shelby Ray Court, Charleston.

“We’re excited this day has arrived, said South Carolina Federal Board Vice Chairman and the former Chairman of the Facilities Committee General J. Emory Mace.  “This branch location has been in the works for five years, so it’s rewarding to see this project come to fruition.”

The new Glenn McConnell branch in West Ashley will be a modular style with limited interior space.  Members will be encouraged to utilize the drive-thru access for all teller transactions.  In-branch service will focus on opening new accounts and loans and business services.

“Our current branch in West Ashley on Sam Rittenberg is one of our most popular locations,” said Scott Woods, President & CEO, South Carolina Federal.  “Additional access for our members residing in West Ashley makes sense. This new location at Glenn McConnell will provide convenient service for our members.”
