As a teacher in the Tulsa Public School System, my Dad was a charter member of the Tulsa Teacher's Credit Union. In our family this Credit Union was a constant. My parents were both members, all three of their daughters were members, and most of their Grandchildren are members. My association with TTCU started with a savings account when I was 16 years old. Now 50 years later, I have the same savings account along with a checking account, auto loan account, and a Visa card. These accounts are now the primary banking accounts for my husband and I. We have closed all but one of our other banking accounts in favor of this one because of the hometown, personal attention we feel we get from TTCU.I think my Dad was right when he presented me with a Credit Union passbook (we used to use passbooks) and admonished me to take care of it because it would become one of the most valuable assets I would own.
