North STAR Student Credit Union Workers invited by Commissioner Rothman to tour Department of Commerce, discuss industry best practices

Four students representing North Star Credit Union’s two student credit union branches –  the Money Cave, a student-run branch at North Star, a K-12 school in Cook; and the Jungle Cave, a student-run branch at K-12 South Ridge School in Culver – visited St. Paul last week. The trip was prompted by an invite from Commissioner Mike Rothmann, who had visited the student branches last spring.

 

 

The students received a tour of the Department of Commerce; lunch at the Minnesota Credit Union Network; and visits to two St. Paul area student credit unions – Ideal’s Student Credit Union at Tartan High School, and Hiway Federal Credit Union’s Governors Branch at Johnson Senior High. The students learned about the credit union industry and how it is regulated, and then exchanged ideas and best practices with other students, learning similarities and differences among their school branches.

 

The trip was organized by the Department of Commerce, MnCUN, and the two Community Education Coordinators at North Star Credit Union – Casey Hagadorn and Jody Feist. All involved noted the value of the students networking and exchanging ideas.
