Thursday, October 29, 2015 6:45 AM

Unity One CU Branch

Recently, Unity One Credit Union celebrated the grand opening of its local student-run branch at Washington Heights Elementary. To run the branch, fourth- and fifth-grade students are selected by their teachers for academic performance and desire to learn. More than 300 students have opened a savings account available at the school.

“It’s amazing to watch the excitement of the students each week as they learn new skills such as receiving deposits and balancing a cash drawer,” said Cynthia Huerta-Aguirre, branch manager at Unity One’s Northside branch. “Teaching students the importance of saving early will help them later in life, and that’s our number one goal.”

Parents of students are also eligible for membership with Unity One Credit Union.
