Edwardsville Community Unit School District #7 has announced a corporate partnership with First Community Credit Union that will run through July 2027.
As part of its partnership, First Community Credit Union will offer custom Edwardsville High School debit cards, available at both local branches, located in the Glen Carbon Walmart and on 157. FCCU will also have advertising on football and basketball scoreboards.
“We are excited to partner with First Community Credit Union,” said District 7 Superintendent Dr. Patrick Shelton. “First Community has a history of being involved in its local communities and we are grateful for their support of our students.”
“First Community was originally founded nearly 90 years ago as the Monsanto Credit Union. Today some of the grandkids of those former Monsanto employees attend Edwardsville High School. This partnership with the district is the best way I can think of to show our support of the school and the community from generation to generation,” said Glenn D. Barks, First Community Credit Union President & CEO.
