Our Story

What began with a humble group of like-minded teachers in Beaumont, Texas, has blossomed into the institution you know and love as Education First Federal Credit Union. Over the decades, we've grown tremendously all the while maintaining our commitment to uplifting and empowering our members - like you.

Welcome to Education First - where no one comes last.

Our Story

Credit Where Credit is Due.

In December 1951, teachers at South Park Schools pooled their resources under Mr. Joel D. Wrotan's direction and made a motion to form South Park Teachers Credit Union - which dedicated itself to benefitting teachers in the Beaumont school district.For over a decade, the credit union operated out of Mr. H.D. Peavy's classroom while he served as president and treasurer. Quickly, membership grew to several hundred which included the Beaumont Independent School District, all private schools in Beaumont and Lamar Institute of Technology. With this expansion, we evolved into the Teachers Credit Union of Beaumont.

In 2006, we became Education First and made it our mission to serve anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Jefferson, Hardin, Jasper, Newton, Tyler, and Orange counties.

At our core, we're true to our Southeast Texas roots. We serve the community that made us who we are and we work hard to improve members' financial well-being and providing the tools and technology to meet ever-changing needs.

When you join Education First, you are a part-owner of a credit union with an impressive legacy and ongoing investment in your future.
