You’re never too young to start learning about money management and careers. With that in mind Cobalt Credit Union, Nebraska’s largest locally owned credit union opened a new student run branch at the Sacred Heart School located in North Omaha.
The new branch will be run by student tellers with guidance from the local Ames Branch of the Credit Union. An official ribbon cutting for the new student run branch was held at the school, with student tellers, all elementary school students, teachers and representatives from the credit union taking part. The ribbon cutting was held in conjunction with the school’s career day activities which took place the same day.
“We have financial education partnerships with a number of schools and it’s a win-win on so many levels. We’ve seen what an impact these programs can have not just in showing kids how to save, but also why to save and giving them exposure to future careers.” shared Gail DeBoer, President and CEO of the Credit Union.
