Westar Federal Credit Union’s “Wildcat Branch”
(student run branch)
The branch will be open in the
West Genesee High School during lunch periods Wednesday’s & Friday’s throughout the school year.
What is a student run branch?
It is a credit union inside a school.
Facts about this location:
Membership is open to all students and staff of the West Genesee Central School District. However, the Wildcat Branch is limited to school district employees and students attending the high school.
High school students staff the branch during all lunches. Interested students go through an application and interview process with Westar’s management.
A Westar employee supervises the students at all times. Because the Wildcat Branch operating system is not live, the students do NOT have access to any of our members’ accounts. Students enter transactions on an excel spreadsheet and the credit union staff post the transactions back at our office.
Nicole Swete, Business, Health and Technology Department Chair is the school liaison. Brandon Doyle, Member Services Representative of Westar FCU is the on-site supervisor.
