The student branches are strategically located near each school’s store or the student cafeteria to afford maximum convenience for student transactions, noted Rick Dunlap, principal of East High School; Jason Sherlock, assistant principal of Bayard Rustin High School; and Deb Tobin, business teacher of Henderson High School (Life is a Highway Jan. 28). Speaking about the firm relationship between the credit union and the three schools were: Keystone FCU Representatives Michelle Merkley, director of marketing and business development, who developed the project; Chuck Jackson, director of information technology, who established the computer linkage; and Jose Colon, director, lending and member services. They also discussed with school officials the possibility of expanding the classroom education component to all students in the schools. The three facilities bring the total of operating-credit-union-student branches in Pennsylvania to 21. Keystone FCU has $69.3 million in assets.
