New Credit Union Breaks Ground

The East Texas Professional Community Credit Union started new construction at 10:00 Tuesday morning.

Bank President and CEO Byron Norton says it will staff eight employees, and they'll be focusing on helping customers save money.

"Our focus has always been the financial well being of our members over all. So when you come in for a loan, we take a look at your overall financial situation and offer you any advice to help you cope with these challenging economic times," says Norton.

The new credit union is located on College Drive next to Stubblefield Learning Center.  It's expected to open this November.
