Giving “Credit” to our Business Partners
The Academies of Nashville could not be successful without the hard work and efforts of our business partners and community supporters. In a recent interview with the City Paper, Paul Johnson, CEO of the US Community Credit Union, spoke about the importance of being involved in the schools. We would like to thank the US Community Credit Union for their continued support and congratulate them on their successes through the McGavock High School USCCU Academy of Business and Finance.
“The student-run branch at McGavock High School represents an important partnership between US Community Credit Union and Metro Public Schools. One of the major goals of our volunteer board of directors is to give back to the communities we serve by educating young adults on financial literacy. In 2011, the USCCU volunteer board of directors decided to become a partner by sponsoring the McGavock High School Academy of Business and Finance. Since April of 2011, our credit union has contributed over 1,900 hours of in-kind service to McGavock High School. Our monetary contributions since April of 2011 total $91,184. However, the most important contribution is the real-live work and banking experience we are able to provide the students at McGavock. Plus, we’re expanding our financial literacy program to the four McGavock High feeder middle schools.”
