Endicott, NY – On June 4th, Visions Federal Credit Union held an event at its headquarters celebrating the success of its high school interns, featuring scholarship awards and student presentations.
This event included junior and senior students from Broome-Tioga BOCES, Harpursville Central School, Maine-Endwell High School, Union-Endicott High School, Windsor High School, Vestal High School, and Reading High School in Pennsylvania.
All of these locations have in-school Visions branches staffed by the students themselves. Student interns gain valuable work experience and earn scholarships for their service. This year, graduating interns received a total of $6,750 across the seven schools.
This event gathered 26 out of the 34 student interns together, where they presented their case study and competition on building the “perfect” credit union. True to the spirit that credit unions were founded on, many schools noted the importance of community involvement and included various forms of giveback in their presentations. School pride was expressed in many of the credit union names, with encouragement to graduate and save money for their future among other common themes.
Judging the event were Ty Muse, President/CEO, Tracey Wheeler, SVP, Chief Membership Engagement Officer, and Jim Wyatt, VP of Member Service. Union-Endicott and Broome-Tioga BOCES took home the top prize, and the remaining schools tied for runners-up based on their high quality presentations and research.
Students’ parents and family members were also invited, along with school educators and administrators.
