US Community Credit Union is proud to announce the opening of our second student-run credit union branch inside of Hillsboro High School. In partnership with Metro Nashville Public Schools and the Academies of Nashville, students at Hillsboro will have the opportunity to become interns and gain real world working experience at US Community Credit Union. Students will be responsible for conducting daily teller transactions and opening accounts for other students at Hillsboro. The student interns will spend their summer being trained as credit union employees and will work in the credit union branches learning career skills. When the students return to school in August, they will be responsible for operating the student-run branch and teaching fellow students about money management.
“Being involved in education and teaching students to be good stewards with their money has become a key mission for US Community Credit Union. With the tremendous amount of success we have had with our student-run branch at McGavock High School, we are excited to be able to extend our reach by opening our second student-run branch at Hillsboro High School”, said Paul Johnson, President/CEO of US Community Credit Union.
The Hillsboro student-run branch will be operated through the US Community Credit Union Academy of International Business and Communications. The credit union branch will be open Monday through Friday during lunch periods. Students and faculty will have the ability to open accounts and make deposits and withdrawals during the hours of operation. Representatives from US Community Credit Union will be at the branch to assist in the operations and to ensure accuracy and confidentiality is maintained. A ribbon cutting event is being planned for this fall.
