We’ve been super busy at WCU over the last three months. From promotions like our Adopt-a-Teacher program, to (ceremonially) breaking ground on our new branch in Forest Grove and dedicated the stage in St. Helens, we’ve gotten a lot of attention from the press recognizing our work for our members. We’ve highlighted them below.
Tri-City Insurance becomes part of Wauna Credit Union (The Chronicle)
Wauna Credit Union recently acquired the agency in a merger deal, which came right before the retirement of longtime owner and founder Glenda Worthington. The insurance company is now owned and operated under Wauna Services, LLC. Aside from non-members who want insurance services, Smiley said that the acquisition will also help give credit union members more options for insurance services. She added that in terms of auto loans and home ownership options, the services go “hand-in-hand.”

Community members are encouraged to post a video on WCU’s Facebook page explaining why their favorite teacher deserves to win.

Forest Grove city leaders and Wauna Federal Credit Union representatives held a groundbreaking ceremony at the lot Thursday, Sept. 21. “To have one of the blank spots in our community filled with a building a year from now — that’ll be tremendously beneficial to Forest Grove,” said Forest Grove/Cornelius Chamber of Commerce Director Howard Sullivan. “Forest Grove will have a different look and feel now as people come into town.”
