Frances Guerra is retiring from San Antonio Credit Union (SACU) after 50 years. Frances Galvan (Guerra) began working at SACU, known then as GECU (Government Employees Credit Union) as a file clerk in 1953 as one of four employees. She is retiring as AVP-lending.
"Since there were only four of us working in the credit union, board members came in on Saturdays to help us take care of the workload," she recalled of her first years in the job, when she worked the half-day distributive education program during her senior year at Fox Tech High School. "My teacher placed me in the job, and I liked it, so after I graduated, I began working there full time. I had always been interested in office work, and I thought I could help people at the credit union."
"She has been a personal contact for members who depended on her to help them take care of their financial affairs," said the credit union. "She has also been a mentor to co-workers and a role model for many."
