BEAUMONT, Texas — Education First Federal Credit Union held a ribbon cutting ceremony at its newly-remodeled Rosedale branch in Beaumont.

Vice president and CEO elect, Kevin Conn said the renovations allow members to have a better experience.

“If you look around, we got rid of the big teller lines, and the big front desk," Conn said. "We want to sit down and have more locations where we can actually sit down and have a conversation with our members. It’s all about the member experience.”

A crowd of elected officials, executives and members gathered at the credit union, which is located near the intersection of Highway 105 and Eastex Freeway.
