Credit Union of Georgia is Proud to be a Partner to the Cherokee County School District.
CANTON – March 19, 2021 – The Credit Union of Georgia staff at the new Hickory Flat Branch location were surprised when Hickory Flat Elementary School Principal Kerry Estep appeared at the branch with flowers and exciting news. Hickory Flat Elementary had selected Credit Union of Georgia as their Partner of the Year! Although the Credit Unions Hickory Flat Branch recently opened in March 2021, the Credit Union has had strong ties to the community for years.
It is no surprise that the Credit Union of Georgia has a passion for supporting local schools and the community. Being founded by educators the Credit Union has long supported the Cherokee County School District including the District’s Educational Foundation and individual schools. In March of 2020 when the Coronavirus pandemic was transitioning schools to virtual learning, the Credit Union provided drawstring bags for all students and staff to pick-up assignments to be done at home and personal items that may have been left in the building. Later in December of 2020 the Credit Union provided Christmas gifts to families in need at Hickory Flat Elementary. The Credit Union has also been extremely supportive of the PTSA and individual teacher needs.
“We are thrilled to be able to support Cherokee County School District and be a community partner they can trust. From having our President & CEO on the Cherokee County Educational Foundation’s Board of Directors to sponsoring school events; we have loved giving back to our community throughout the district. Credit Union of Georgia is truly honored to receive this recognition by our new neighbor in Hickory Flat,” said Amanda Arnold, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development.
