MANZI ANNOUNCES THAT JEANNE D’ARC CREDIT UNION WILL OPEN AT METHUEN HIGH SCHOOL
Mayor William M. Manzi announced today that the Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union will open a new branch office at Methuen High School this winter. The High School is located at One Ranger Road. This is the fourth High School branch for Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union which will serve the financial needs of the school’s 2000 students, teachers, administrators and staff. The Credit Union’s partnership with Methuen High will offer students the unique opportunity to receive valuable financial education and hands-on training as part of the high school curriculum.
The Credit Union will build a temporary branch in the Main Lobby of the High School and will move to a permanent space once the High School renovation is complete. This temporary office will be situated in the school’s main entrance, providing easy access for students and teachers. It will be open Monday through Friday during school hours. In addition to teller stations, the office will house an ATM.
This is the Credit Union’s tenth office in the Merrimack Valley and the third office it has opened in two years, a testament to the Credit Union’s increasing popularity throughout the area. In addition to its headquarters in Lowell, other offices are located in Chelmsford, Dracut, Tyngsboro, Methuen, and Westford.
“This is an excellent partnership between the City and the business community,” Manzi stated. “The high school branch office will provide students with a chance to open a bank account at a convenient location. It will also launch many educational opportunities for students and teachers. I’d like to officially welcome Jeanne D’Arc as they open their second Methuen location.”
Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union was established in 1912 and is a full-service, member-owned, community-based financial cooperative with over 54,000 members and more than $840 million in assets. They operate six full-service branches in Lowell, Dracut (2), Tyngsboro, Chelmsford and Methuen, Mass.; three High School Branches at Lowell High, Dracut High and Nashoba Valley Technical High School; and loan centers in Lowell and Chelmsford.
