The Ram branch will provide students, teachers and school employees the option of opening accounts with the credit union. Reidsville, N.C.-based American Partners also will provide financial education to students at the school (Weekly Update Sept. 11). The branch will be open three days a week for two hours each day. It will offer checking and savings accounts, online banking and debit cards. Rockingham County School Superintendent Rodney Shotwell supported the credit union opening the branch at the school. “If we can teach them here not to pick up that credit card application in college [and rack up a lot of debt], we will have accomplished something,” he said. Stephanie Wilson, American Partners marketing specialist, was credited for bringing the branch to the school. She was inspired to open the branch after visiting a branch of Henrico FCU at a high school in Richmond, Va. State Rep. Nelson Cole (D-N.C.), U.S. Rep. Brad Miller (D-N.C.) and U.S. Senate candidate Kay Hagan, along with members of the Reidsville city council, attended the branch’s opening ceremony. American Partners has $49 million in assets.
