Member Story: Celina R.

Once she became an education specialist, Celina’s friends encouraged her to check out SchoolsFirst FCU. She had become unhappy with the service she was receiving at her bank and was pleased that the credit union had products just for school employees like her—she opened her Membership immediately.

Among the many Membership benefits she enjoys, Celina values her Rewards Mastercard because she was able to earn points to help pay for her honeymoon travel expenses and other adventures. “All the points I saved had paid for all our flights to places like Mexico and Costa Rica.” And now that her family is growing, she is grateful for the low rate that takes the stress out of getting what she needs for her daughter. “I’m saving all those points from buying items for my baby daughter to pay for our next family vacation.”

Celina loves the benefits of being a Member for the past 13 years and would not bank anywhere else.

“I love being part of the Credit Union and I appreciate all the products they have for school employees. I feel like everything is personalized to fit my needs.”
