Reading Cooperative Bank’s Second Educational Branch Opens in Wakefield
Reading, MA – Reading Cooperative Bank has opened its second educational branch inside the Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational High School (NEMT) in Wakefield. The bank’s first teaching branch was opened at Reading Memorial High School in 2008. Amy VanMagness is the Branch Supervisor and oversees the day to day operation of the branch by NEMT students. The new location is a fully functioning branch, and is open to the public. It is located outside the cafeteria, right down the hall from the Breakheart Inn (NEMT’s full service restaurant). The branch is open Monday through Friday from 8:15 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. during the school year.
The Bank is running a special promotion for new customers of the NEMT Branch, who can earn up to $100 for opening a new account. Depositors can earn $50 when they open a Personal Checking Account with Direct Deposit*, and earn an additional $50 when they setup and use Online Bill Pay*! For more information visit the branch at NEMT or readingcoop.com/50-50.
“I’m excited to be back in the branches and helping to teach the students at NEMT all about banking. The educational branch is so much more than just a bank branch and I am happy to help provide the students with real life experience that will help them reach their future goals,” says VanMagness.
