W.D. Fussell, a business officer in Katy ISD, started Brazos Valley Schools Credit Union in 1954. Mr. Fussell served as the credit union’s Treasurer, and kept the deposits in a shoe box in his office desk. In order to fund BVSCU’s first loan, the credit union had to call some of the members and ask them to make deposits so we’d have enough money to lend. The credit union was originally chartered as Tri-County Teachers Credit Union (serving educators of Waller County, Fort Bend County, and Katy ISD). The name was changed to Brazos Valley Schools Credit Union to better describe the 13 county area of Texas which the credit union now serves.
