Hiway Federal Credit Union - ST. PAUL, Minn. (December 18, 2017) - State and local officials, leadership from Saint Paul Public Schools and administrators from Como Park Sr. High School joined Hiway Federal Credit Union® (Hiway) to celebrate the Grand Opening of its student-run Cougars Branch.

The student branches provide an excellent opportunity for students to learn about financial services and credit responsibility through hands-on experience. Hiway hired three Como Park students to run the branch during their lunch hours. They will be talking with their peers and about the importance of saving, how to budget, monitoring spending, understanding credit and the tools available to help them manage their money.

We know there is a significant need for youth to learn basic financial skills as they prepare for adulthood and look ahead to college and careers,” said Dave Boden, Hiway President/CEO. “Our student branches provide the opportunity to offer students resources to help them develop these fundamental skills in a trusted environment. It’s gratifying to see our partnership with Saint Paul Schools continue to grow with the opening of our branch in Como Park. Supporting youth in our community and being part of helping our broader community is the most rewarding part of what we do at Hiway.”

Hiway has four student-run credit union branches in the Saint Paul School district. Hiway’s commitment to financial education supports the Succeed Saint Paul Campaign to invest in the success of students and the City of Saint Paul, because when all students succeed, all of Saint Paul succeeds.

“We are very excited to build a life-long partnership with Hiway,” said Theresa Neal, Principal of Como Park. “Working together produces results and brings added value to our students, our school and the community.”
