GCS Awards Nicole R. Thorp Scholarship

GCS Federal Credit Union has recently awarded the $1,500 Nicole R. Thorp Scholarship.

Amanda Cornell of Staunton High School was this year’s recipient of the Nicole R. Thorp Scholarship. GCS was looking for applicants who actively volunteer in the community.  Nicole R. Thorp, who the scholarship is now named after, was a big believer in helping out where needed. 

Candidates were also required to submit an essay explaining why saving and budgeting are important habits to develop.  GCS tries to guide youth in developing and reaching savings goals and wanted to hear how its teens have succeeded.

GCS wishes Amanda the best of luck in the future.

Founded in 1941, GCS Federal Credit Union currently has assets of more than $312 million. GCS serves more than 39,000 members throughout Madison and most of St. Clair Counties in Illinois via 7 conveniently located branches, numerous ATM locations, and 24-hour account access through a telephone audio response system and PCU online banking.

Reporting on National Bank Transfer Day

Sometimes banks lose sight of their customers because of their profit-driven mindset. From the suburbs to the city, many American customers closed their major bank accounts on “National Move Your Money Day” which took place in November of last year.

Organizers moved their funds to credit unions, attracted by the credit unions’ dedication to fairness. Credit union account holders are members, not customers, because a member’s deposits are considered his or her share of ownership. Watch this video to see how frustration with conventional banks led many Americans to make the switch from banks to credit unions.

GCS Federal Credit Union has served the Madison and St. Clair counties in Illinois for over seven decades. We’re proud to be a member-minded institution. Call us today at (618) 797-7993 for more information about our membership services.
