Fort Campbell FCU Plans Two In-School Branches
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Fort Campbell FCU, which has been serving the military personnel at the army base for 56 years, plans to open student-run branches in two local high schools.
Operating the branches will be part of the student financial education curriculum at the two schools, Northeast and Rossview high schools.
Current plans are for the Northeast branch to be open on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Rossview will be open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Both branches will be open during the lunch periods, and details are being worked out for hours at the branches.
Students in the course are bonded credit union employees trained to perform a variety of transactions and earning a competitive wage for the time they are assigned to work in the branch. A credit union management employee will oversee the branch at all times, and will supervise and mentor the students during their working hours.
