SAYREVILLE, N.J. – Raritan Bay FCU’s student-run Cardinal McCarrick High School branch, dubbed the Eagle’s Nest, is now a freestanding kiosk. Located inside the school’s cafeteria, which is shared with St. Mary’s Elementary School, the branch is now open to all students, staff and faculty at both schools from grades six to 12. The new central location combined with the branch’s business hours during lunch periods has sparked new interest among students. Art Education students from Cardinal McCarrick High School painted the kiosk with images of eagles and money, to go along with the branch’s theme. To promote the new branch, Raritan Bay held a Grand Re-Opening, complete with sweepstakes, a prize-wheel, and lots of fun giveaways for students. Students had the chance to win cash prizes, an MP3 Player, a digital camera, and a free cafeteria lunch. Raritan Bay FCU has always been dedicated to serving the financial and educational needs of its community’s youth. Raritan Bay FCU opened the Lighthouse, the first student branch in the state, at South Amboy High School. Through these branches, the credit union says it can give students the tools they need to become financially savvy and independent adults.
