The branch, named “JagCity CU” by students, will open every Friday during lunch hour. Six Gateway Institute of Technology students attended training at Gateway Metro and will staff the school branch along with a credit union employee. “I’m so impressed with the level of intelligence, diversity and maturity of Gateway Institute’s student representatives,” said David Barton, Gateway Metro president/CEO. “The school’s focus on the ‘real world’ fits perfectly with the financial education component that students will receive from their member-owned credit union. No other public high school in the state can say they have their very own credit union branch in their school.” Gateway Institute of Technology Principal Elizabeth Bender commented on the historic occasion at the grand opening ceremony, as did Katrina Stierholz, assistant vice president of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. Meagan Bonnell-Yogi, business education department head at the school, coordinated setting up the branch with the credit union. “The students are so excited with the opportunity to work in and become a member of the credit union,” said Bonnell-Yogi. Gateway Metro operates the first and only elementary school student-assisted credit union branches in Missouri at Our Lady of Guadalupe School, St. Ferdinand School, and Christ, Light of the Nations School. The credit union also opened a student-assisted branch at Trinity Catholic High School in April. Gateway Metro FCU has $182.8 million in assets.
