NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee CU has pledged $100,000 of in-kind support, with annual investments of $50,000 to follow, to Antioch High School or a new program to bring financial professionals into the city’s high schools and offer internships.

In Antioch’s business and finance academy, select students will be interviewed and chosen to work for six weeks this summer as paid employees at the credit union, where they will be trained in various financial skills.

The credit union also will install a student-run credit union inside Antioch. Students who complete the summer program will operate the new credit union as branch managers and tellers. It will open during the fall of the 2010-2011 school year.

“Participating students will be taught lessons in ethics, corporate values and financial literacy and will still earn full high-school credit,” the credit union said.
