CONGRATULATIONS TO KASEY LANDRY , Senior at Erath High School, the recipient of the Lafayette Chapter of Credit Unions 2010 Scholarship.  Each year the Chapter sponsors a $2,000 college scholarship for graduating high school seniors and currently enrolled undergraduate college or technical school students.  There were 54 applications received from 11 area credit unions.  A random drawing was held on Monday, March 1, 2010. 

 

Kasey is an excellent student and socially responsible member of the community.  We applaud her outstanding academic and personal achievements.  Kasey’s ability to excel while participating in extracurricular sports and activities is impressive.  In the Fall she plans to attend University of Louisiana at Lafayette to pursue a career in the medical field.

WE NOW OFFER GAP (Guaranteed Asset Protection) INSURANCE…..

Putting less than 20% down on your vehicle purchase means you could be “upside down” on your loan-to-value ratio for the next two to three years.  GAP (Guaranteed Asset Protection) helps ease your financial burden by paying the potentially high-cost difference between your insurance settlement and your loan balance on items directly related to the purchase of your vehicle.

 

If you already have a vehicle loan with us, it’s not too late to purchase GAP Insurance.  For $95 you can purchase this protection and have peace of mind.  Give us a call at 898-1388.
