On Friday, February 24, Greenville Federal Credit Union made a big announcement: Greer High School will soon become home to the credit union’s second student-run high school branch.
This new branch will join The Branch at Greenville High, which opened in 2016, in bringing real-world financial literacy and education to students in the Greenville area. Greer High School students, faculty, and staff will have daily access to the financial services provided by the student-run branch, while student employees will gain hands-on experience and preparation for their future careers — plus course credit.
The Branch at Greer High is planned to open in August 2023, with construction set to take place over the summer. Seven years after the opening of The Branch at Greenville High, this new branch represents Greenville Federal Credit Union’s continued investment in our community. Read: A high school branch doesn’t bring the credit union monetary profit — it’s purely a way to give back. (Another way Greenville Federal Credit Union supports students in our community? Via annual scholarships.)
For an idea of what this new branch will look like, take a peek at our visit to The Branch at Greenville High. We’ll also be checking back in on the new student-run branch’s progress in the coming months, so stay tuned.*
