Happy Thanksgiving! Quiz included.

November 21, 2007

Here is a fun little quiz to test your Thanksgiving History knowledge. Link to quiz. I’m ashamed to admit that I only scored a 60 out of a possible 100 points.

Here’s another link to a History.com video about Thanksgiving, so that you can prepare for the quiz.

From your friends at Piedmont Credit Union, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


A Visit to Woodrow Wilson Elementary

October 8, 2007

Once again I’m amazed at how happy and joyful teachers are on a Monday afternoon. Of course Ms. Graham was thrilled that her dance students were featured this weekend in the newspaper! They recently performed a dance in celebration of Constitution Day. While they didn’t have much time to prepare for it the performance was very good, the kids had fun, and they learned something while doing it.

It was also very nice speaking with Mrs. Thomas at the end of my time in the teacher’s lounge. She has been an educator for 47 years working in both private and public education! There’s something to be said for experience. I’ve been working in credit unions for only about 9 years now, and I have such a greater understanding of how it all works now as opposed to when I started. It was great to hear from a teacher with so much experience that this local school is doing a good job of teaching our children. Keep up the good work Woodrow Wilson Elementary School!

Thank you to all the other teachers and staff who stopped by to say “hello” and thank you for your kind words about our your credit union.

Note for people who didn’t go to elementary school in Virginia: Woodrow Wilson was born in Staunton, VA and was the 28th President of the United States during World War I.
