9-year-olds CU-related math project a winner
GREENSBORO, N.C. (2/25/08)--An elementary school math project based on branch traffic patterns at Carolina Mountains CU, Penrose, N.C., has earned first- and second-place awards for nine-year-old Ansley Harron.

Ansley, the daughter of Brian Harron, chief financial officer at the credit union, won first place in her school and second place in a county math competition, according to the North Carolina Credit Union League (Weekly Update Feb. 22). Ansley will compete next at the Western North Carolina Regional Math Fair at Appalachian State University in April. She also will present her findings to the credit union board in spring. Brian and Ansley pulled the teller reports for November and December 2007, and examined which days were busiest at the credit union. Ansley used Excel spreadsheets to analyze the information, taking holiday closings into account. She also interviewed CEO Diane Rogers, her father said. The credit union has never done an analysis on traffic patterns before, but Ansley’s research indicated that Carolina Mountains had made the right decision to provide extra staff on Mondays and Fridays--the busiest days. Her project indicated that many members used the drive-up on Saturday mornings, validating the credit union’s decision to open on the weekends. Ansley’s project taught her a lot about credit unions. She read about how they offer better rates and lower fees, and it “gave her a chance to learn a little more about what her dad does for a living,” Brian said.
