The Scots branch opened today at Highland Park Sr. High School.
“There was a great deal of excitement this morning as we opened the new Scots Branch at Highland Park Sr. High,” said Bill Wagner, Hiway Vice President of Business Development. “It was great to see students stopping by to talk to Hiway’s newest employees to learn more about the credit union. We have hired three Highland Park students to run the new student branch under the supervision of Maureen Daly, Assistant Branch Manager of our Fort Snelling Branch. I’d like to thank Tina Jones, Hiway’s Community Outreach Administrator, along with the group of student volunteers that planned today’s event, making a big splash for the grand opening.”

Our commitment to financial education supports the Succeed Saint Paul Campaign to invest in the success of students and the City of Saint Paul, because when all students succeed, all of Saint Paul succeeds. The student branches provide an excellent opportunity for students to learn about financial services and credit responsibility through hands-on experience.
