America First Credit Union, Riverdale, Utah, opened a new branch in Henderson on Sept. 13. Grand opening events included drawings for $100 Visa gift cards and a flat-screen TV. This is the credit union’s first new branch since it fully converted five branch offices of the former Las Vegas-based Community One Federal Credit Union into its operations.

Belvoir Federal Credit Union, Woodbridge, Va., announced the reopening of its student-run credit union branch at the largest elementary school in Fairfax County. The Dolphin branch reopens every school year in October to provide students, faculty and staff the convenience of having a credit union directly on school property and to promote financial literacy to students. The Dolphin Branch is operated by 6th graders who show exceptional skills in their mathematics classes. Since every student is eligible for membership, the student tellers are able to learn the operational side of how a credit union is run and the student members discover the fundamentals of saving money.
