West Side Credit Union Open
Western Hills business department is proud to announce the grand opening of our Westside Credit Union. Our partnership with Commonwealth Credit Union allows students to learn the importance of saving at an early age. The WSCU also provides loan services for students who forget their lunch money or need a loan for an upcoming event. Savings rates are high & interest rates are low so come visit us and let us set up an account for you!

Have you ever wanted to just sit down and enjoy a meal with your principal? Well now you can! On the third Tuesday of every month you can now sit down and eat with Rita Rector. All you have to do is buy/bring your lunch to the office and they will direct you to the conference room. DON'T MISS OUT!
