We’ve had a wonderful time this April partnering with Kate Bond Elementary to celebrate Financial Literacy Month. The teachers and staff have enthusiastically shared our dedication to providing students with learning opportunities that center on money management.
This week was especially fun: we opened our doors for field trips and welcomed two groups of 3rd and 5th graders for a behind-the-scenes look at how a credit union works. We loved the energy and buzz that filled our normally quiet work spaces as VP of Retail Tara Smith lead the students through our Kate Bond Branch and corporate offices. Department managers provided mini-presentations on Lending, Marketing, Collections, Call Center Operations, and Training. The kids were full of questions, and loved learning how they could relate each department function to their own life experiences.
We hope all the students who visited enjoyed their trip, learned a lot, and will remember their friends at Orion!
