Celebrating 70 Years of Service and Committing to Strengthening Our Community, Supporting Neighbors and Prioritizing People Over Profit
Silver State Schools Credit Union (SSSCU), announced it is opening its first in-school branch in southern Nevada at Southeast Career Technical Academy (SECTA) High School. Silver State Schools Credit Union agreed to partner with the Clark County School District (CCSD) to build four in-school SSSCU branches and is debuting this inaugural school this morning.
The SECTA Roadrunner Branch is located at 5710 S. Mountain Vista Street, Las Vegas, NV 89120. It will provide all students and teachers access to basic financial transactions, as well as an on-site ATM, and will be open to SECTA students, teachers, administrators, and staff. However, it will not be open to the public. Students are selected to participate as “Student Tellers” and they receive mentorship in the areas of branch operations, financial products, services, procedures and financial literacy.
Along with serving the educational and Southern Nevada community, this innovative “in-school” partnership will also include the availability of school-branded SSSCU Debit and Credit cards. Silver State Schools Credit Union will also donate a percentage of interchange income back to Southeast Career Technical Academy. The credit union will also be providing financial literacy seminars for students and parents as part of the in-school branch program.
