Truliant opens first middle school branch at Wiley
MARCH 9, 2012 – Truliant Federal Credit Union is hosting a ribbon-cutting ceremony today at 10 a.m. to celebrate the opening of its new middle school Member Financial Center at Wiley Middle School. The new location, which opened its doors on January 25, is the first credit union branch located in a middle school in North Carolina. Truliant’s formal ribbon cutting ceremony will feature a performance by Wiley's Honor Strong Ensemble.
“This is a great way to help students learn the value of saving money early,” said Principal Sean Gaillard of Wiley. “Our school theme is Leadership and Service, and Truliant is a great partner to help students realize this through personal finance.”
Truliant is pleased to be part of the financial education of young adults in our community,” stated Marc Schaefer, Truliant’s President and CEO. “We look forward to meeting the needs of and educating our young member-owners.”
The student-run credit union, located inside the school, will operate as a real financial institution where students can open their own personal savings accounts and conduct their own transactions. The credit union will be open on Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
