Fort Worth, Texas— Convenience is the word for Keller Independent School District students, teachers and area residents as their banking options will soon increase. Unity One Credit Union is set to open their ninth branch at the Keller ISD Center for Advanced Learning (KCAL) on Friday, April 21, 2017.
Hundreds of students, staff and community members were introduced to the new branch at the school’s dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, April 18. KCAL is the District’s first-ever campus devoted to career and technical education.
“Unity One is thrilled for the opportunity to partner with Keller ISD for the historical opening of KCAL. Our goal is to give students a solid foundation of money management skills through both hands-on learning and classroom presentations. Financial literacy is more important than ever, and we want to help students prepare to make wise financial choices in the future,” said Gary Williams, president of Unity One Credit Union.
The KCAL branch, located at 201 Bursey Road, welcomes members Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The branch will employ Keller ISD students as tellers and is equipped to provide the credit union’s full menu of products and services including deposits, withdrawals and loan processing. The branch will also serve as a CO-OP Shared Branching site in the near future.
