Welcome to the LOC Student-Run Credit Union at Power Middle School!
It is Power’s 13th year of participating in this great hands-on learning experience for students of all ages. LOC Credit Union operates the Student-Run Credit Union program in 21 schools across Livingston and Oakland Counties partnering with Farmington Public Schools, Hartland Consolidated Schools and Howell Public Schools.
The Student-Run Credit Union is a LOC branch that operates every Thursday outside of the cafeteria. 7th and 8th grade students are the employees who hold the positions of branch managers, tellers, member service guides and marketing representatives. They learn vital life skills and values such as teamwork, respect, integrity and responsibility, while enhancing math skills and confidence.
Any student who attends Power can participate in the program as an actual member of the credit union with a real savings account. Students will conduct transactions at their school and gain the independence of managing their finances and practicing the act of saving. Whether they save a penny or ten dollars, they are responsible for the actions and reap the rewards of participating.
Students, staff and families who already have savings accounts are able to participate as soon as the school branch opens. Don’t have an account with LOC? No problem, you can open one and start participating immediately!
Power Student-Run Credit Union is open Thursdays from 8:45am-9:04am and operates under the supervision of Shayna McArthur, Business Development Manager at LOC.
