66 Federal Credit Union, nominated by Tri County Technology Center 66 Federal Credit Union’s leadership team is the foremost progressive community partner Tri County Technology Center has encountered over the past year. Not only does 66 Federal Credit Union create opportunities to enrich educational experiences for students through the TCTC Foundation, but they also develop rich internship experiences for students to broaden their classroom education. Representatives from the Credit Union helped kick-off a dynamic year by sponsoring the TCTC New Employee Orientation and leading new hires through a Bartlesville orientation in addition to a financial literacy orientation. In addition to accommodating the TCTC new hires, 66 Federal Credit Union sponsored the first TCTC All Staff Meeting in September. They provided lunch for all employees as well as, shared gifts with staff and the benefits of being a Credit Union member. The Credit Union set the precedent for what has become a monthly occurrence of partner organizations sponsoring Tri County All Staff Meetings. In addition to the sponsorships and support at the employee level, the 66 Federal Credit Union staff is highly involved with students’ educational opportunities. An opportunity presented itself during the FY10 school year for Tri County staff to research a debit/credit card partner. The goal was to enable stakeholders to utilize a debit/credit card to promote brand loyalty to TCTC, and gain a financial return for Tri County. The idea was presented to 66 Federal Credit Union and after careful consideration it came to fruition. What began as an idea, immediately turned into a class project for three Tri County Marketing Management students. These students worked hand-in- hand with the Credit Union Marketing Department to develop and implement a comprehensive marketing plan for the debit card. The students further delved into the project by developing collateral marketing pieces and finally made a presentation debuting the TCTC debit “Spirit” card to all Tri County Staff. The students were then able to use their experience as a DECA State competition project. When an individual signs up for a 66 Federal Credit Union Trailblazer Spirit Card, the Credit Union gives the individual $25 and contributes $25 to TCTC’s Foundation. The staff has also made it a priority to open their doors to internship experiences for many Tri County Technology Center students. The real life, hands-on career experiences the 66FCU staff affords TCTC’s students are an immeasurable benefit to the future success of the students and the quality of education they receive. 66 Federal Credit Union staff serves a vital role within Tri County Technology Center on both short-term and full-time advisory boards. The role of the advisory board member is essential to the future and success of each individual program. The Credit Union is committed to the success of the school and the student.
