Teachers Credit Union's new office is next door to its Baker roots

Published: Monday, June 30, 2014 at 03:51 PM.

Okaloosa Teachers Federal Credit Union founder Dan Green was not the institution’s first member.

“I asked Dan one time why his account number was not no. 1,” Gloria Reeves said. “He told me that he did not have the $25 to deposit for the charter fee and John Blackshear did. So John had account no. 1.”

The credit union’s charter members were Baker School teachers John Blackshear, Helen Blackshear, Amarene Griffith, Clinton Doug Griffith, Allen Kelley, James Striplin and Green.
