BUCHANAN, MICHIGAN – November 8, 2021– Buchanan Middle School celebrated the grand opening  and ribbon cutting of the Buchanan Jr Herd Student Credit Union on Wednesday, November 3rd.  Buchanan Jr Herd Student Credit Union marks the 19th student ran credit union currently operating  within Honor.  

The student assembly was led by Honor's Community Assistant Vice President Karol Behrle to bring  awareness and excitement to students from grades 5-7 about the importance of saving money.  Operating the new student credit union are student tellers and managers alongside team Honor.  

“We are so excited to have the opportunity to partner with Buchanan Schools to teach the students  here at the middle school about the power of saving money at a young age,” commented Karol Behrle.  “Our student credit unions provide the students an opportunity to learn life skills and have fun while  they’re saving money. With each deposit a student makes into their account, they receive a fun swag  item, get entered into monthly raffles, and more.”  

In attendance for the grand opening were Honor team members, Michigan Senator Kim LaSata’s District  Director, Daniel Carrick, Buchanan Community Schools Superintendent, Patricia Robinson, Dean of  Students, Ryan Frontczak, and Principal of Buchanan Middle School, Shelby Beasley.
