60 Stories for 60 Years- #7

In 1969 my husband began a new job at UPS in Nashville. I had completed two years of teaching in Mississippi and was pregnant with our second child when we moved to Nashville. I began teaching with Metro Nashville Public Schools in the fall of 1972 and was delighted to find out that I could spread my salary over twelve months instead of ten by having my check deposited with Educators Credit Union. I immediately joined the credit union. Then I found out that I could finance a new vehicle at the credit union and save because interest was computed on the declining balance method rather than on the simple interest method. Thus I became a big fan of ECU (now Cornerstone!). Through all these years, I have borrowed on line of credit and for vehicles, established checking and saving accounts, and still kept my membership during the 25 years we returned to Mississippi to run a family business. We are now retired, have returned to Tennessee (Murfreesboro) and still remain a part of the Cornerstone Credit Union family! I have never had anyone in all these years to be unpleasant or unhelpful so I will continue dealing with the great staff whether by phone or in person! My goal now is to save and not borrow, but I know that Cornerstone is there if I need them should tough times come!
