TTCU Employee Featured in Academies of Nashville 10-Year Storybook
Congratulations to Ms. Diamond Grimes on being featured in the Academies of Nashville Storybook! The storybook, distributed at the 2017 Awards Ceremony on April 24, featured brief accounts of achievement, hard work and growth from 40 Academy graduates over the past 10 years.
Congratulations on being such an inspirational success story in this book – You make us proud! Ms. Grimes’ profile appears below.
Diamond was one of 12,258 graduates from the Academies of Nashville from 2006-2016. As the cover states the book represents the faces and places that have made the Academies of Nashville and Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools a 10-year success story! At TTCU, we couldn’t agree more!
The Tennessee Credit Union’s Academy of Business and Finance at Antioch High School, Nashville.
The Tennessee Credit Union has been a sponsor of the Academy of Business & Finance at Antioch High School since 2010 and was honored to be MNPS’ first “naming rights” partner. Our participation goes beyond donations of funds and materials; we provide experiential learning opportunities to help students grow academically, professionally and personally. Our students learn industry skills, experience mentoring sessions, hear TTCU professionals deliver financial literacy lessons in their classrooms, join in over 30 job shadows annually, and vie for several work internships at TTCU.
TTCU takes its partnership further by operating a fully-functioning Credit Union branch in the school, staffed by trained Antioch students. In 2016, seven students received certification as Financial Counselors by CUNA. TTCU also serves on the School’s Advisory Board.
Supported by our partnership program, we help students find their voices, develop their strengths, pursue their passions and make their mark on the world.
