Everybody has been asking what our retired Chairman has been doing, well this should show that Smart Choice Credit Union doesn’t come in to play like it used to. Ed is going strong at work and at play. What a great guy!

After 16 years of dedication Ed Mcintire has retired from the Board of Directors as it’s Chairman. Dr. Mcinitire was the driving force in chartering the Bradley Initiative Credit Union in 2003. ” Ed made it happen” said Denis Collins, the credit union’s President and CEO. Through hundreds of hours of meetings with the Tennessee Department of Financial Institutions and local individuals, the credit union was opened on January 21st in 2003.
To this day the credit union has been a vital part in assisting it’s members to become financially educated.  Smart Choice Credit Union, as it is called today, is a Community Development Financial Institution that has continued it’s mission in providing financial solutions to the community. This was a vision of Eds that has continued for 16 years.

Second Annual Kiwanis Club Golf Tournament

This is SCCU’s 2017 championship wining golf team. For the second time SCCU defended it’s title in the second annual Kiwanis Club Golf Tournament. It was a beautiful day to spend time outside enjoying the beautiful Chatata Valley Golf Course. The SCCU team worked well together to bring home another championship. They contribute their win to the love of the sport, hours spent practicing, playing for a good cause, and the desire to make the rest at SCCU proud. We are so grateful to the team at the Kiwanis Club that made this day such an enjoyable event and much fun was had by all. We hope to bring home another championship team next year and look forward to counting to support this wonderful organization.  Pictured are Clark Melton, Keoni Vidrine, David Collins and SCCU’s President Denis Collins.
