With scissors in hand, CEO Joe Melbourne cut the ribbon, marking the Central Florida Educators Federal Credit Unions grand opening Friday, November 4 at 11 a.m.

The grand opening began with a congregation in the auditorium with special guest speakers. Attendees included board of directors from CFE, employees of the credit union, academy of finance board members, parents and student tellers. These attendees had the opportunity to hear from Melbourne, School Board member Rick Roach, Maria Clevenger, and Finance Magnet teacher William Daniel. The speakers focused on what it took to get the branch open and the importance of the branch to the student body.

“The grand opening was important because it officially signified the opening of the branch and the beginning of an ongoing legacy on campus,” senior branch manager intern Brandi Recker said.

The grand opening ended with an official ribbon cutting ceremony in front of the credit union.  The credit union has about 260 accounts open to date and is available to students Monday-Friday from 7:14 a.m. to 2 p.m. (to 1 p.m. on Wednesdays).

“The credit union is essential to Boone’s campus because it provides students the opportunity for real world learning. It gives them the opportunity to learn how to manage their own money, which is an important life skill,” Recker said.
