Bright & Early: Getting Creative Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Metro is hatching a new plan to make money by selling naming rights to academic programs, beginning with the Tennessee Credit Union academy of business and finance at Antioch High School. Now, our minds can take this new thing in a number of different directions, but in all fairness, they might be able to make a pretty decent chunk of change off of it. The Tennessee Credit Union has agreed to shell out $150,000 in “cash, building improvements and in-kind services” in order to have their name tacked onto the academy. Additionally, TCU will be opening a fully-functioning credit union branch inside of the school and training students to operate it as part of an neat-sounding career training program.
