Student run credit union branch at Johnson Sr. High School open today
ST. PAUL, MN (November 10, 2015) — Hiway Federal Credit Union (Hiway) and staff and administrators at Johnson Sr. High School in St. Paul are abuzz with excitement on the opening day of Hiway’s first student run credit union branch with Saint Paul Schools.
“There was a great deal of excitement this morning at Johnson Sr. High as we opened our first student run branch adjacent to the cafeteria,” said Dave Boden, Hiway President/CEO. “It was great to see students stopping by to talk to Hiway’s newest employees to learn more about the credit union. We have hired three Johnson students to run the new student branch under the supervision of Maureen Daly, Assistant Branch Manager of our Fort Snelling Branch. A group of student volunteers is also working with Tina Jones, Hiway’s Community Outreach Administrator, to make a big splash for the grand opening. We’re looking forward to seeing what they are coming up with for the celebration.”
Hiway’s commitment to financial education supports the Succeed Saint Paul Campaign to invest in the success of students and the City of Saint Paul, because when all students succeed, all of Saint Paul succeeds. The student branches will provide an excellent opportunity for students to learn about financial services and credit responsibility through hands-on experience. Hiway’s goal is to provide financial education, along with real-life experiences to engage students and give them the financial skills that will prepare them for college, careers and beyond.
The Grand Opening of Hiway’s Governors Branch at Johnson Sr. High School will be held on Tuesday, November 17th, 9:00am – 10:00am in the Johnson Sr. High School Cafeteria.
