Keesler to open Mississippis first student-run branch
BILOXI, Miss. (8/10/10)--Keesler FCU is establishing a student-run branch at Biloxi (Miss.) High School, the first in-school branch in Mississippi, said the credit union. The branch, named Biloxi Indian CU, will be operated by five student tellers and supervised by a full-time Keesler FCU employee. The ribbon cutting ceremony was Monday (TheSunHerald.com Aug. 8 and WLOX Aug. 9). The $1.8 billion asset Keesler has worked with several high schools across the Mississippi coast the past decade, teaching students about finances. It developed its Money Talks program at Biloxi High. Money Talks is a four-week after-school program offered one or two times a semester, Sharon Keller, vice president of marketing, told The Sun Herald. The student-run branch, located in a converted classroom, will be open during students' lunch hour, 10:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m., on school days. The tellers are seniors enrolled in Keesler's MoneyTalks Program. They also attended orientation and teller training. In lieu of wages, they earn course credit and community service hours.
