Student Run Credit Union Opens Inside Antioch High School
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Students at Antioch High School cut the ribbon on a unique partnership—a student run credit union.
The public-private partnership was showed off Monday. The Tennessee Credit Union is inside the school as part of the Academy of Business and Finance.
The student-run credit union which will operate during lunch hours for students and staff who want to open new accounts; take deposits to checking or savings accounts; as well as take loan payments and do withdrawals.
Ten students spent the summer interning with the credit union and now they'll manage the branch throughout the school year.
"I've learned how to manage my money. I've learned how to keep track of what I've spent. I've learned how to do transactions, how to help other people. A lot overall," said student Chris Wilson.
This is the first time in the history of Nashville's public school system that a local business has earned the right to be an official, named sponsor of a school program.
