Nutmeg expands services to Rocky Hill High School

Credit Union opens in School branch location

ROCKY HILL, CT (December 12, 2018) — Nutmeg State Financial Credit Union celebrated the grand opening of its Rocky Hill High School (RHHS) branch location with a ribbon-cutting ceremony held on December 5th. In attendance were Nutmeg President and CEO John Holt, RHHS Principal Mario Almeida and members of the Rocky Hill Board of Education.

Located at 50 Chapin Avenue, the student-run branch is a unique step forward for the credit union and will focus on preparing younger generations for the future. The branch will feature a self-service kiosk to be used by students and faculty for transactions such as account transfers, loan payments, check and cash deposits or withdrawals and much more. In addition to providing important financial management information, Nutmeg hopes the new branch will also serve as a starting point for college-bound students interested in the banking world.

“We’ve worked with many schools across the state over the years, but this is the first branch we’ve actually placed in a school,” said Holt following the ceremony. “We’re here to help students better understand banking and prepare them for smart decision making in the future.”

The credit union plans on placing a self-service kiosk at the RHHS branch next month to appeal to the younger millennial demographic. With custom technology as a replacement for cash drawers or lock boxes, Nutmeg’s connection with younger generations is stronger than ever and allows for a unique, modern presence.

Nutmeg prides itself on working closely with local organizations in the community. The new branch at RHHS is essential for providing financial education and helping students gain work experience.
