Not only can we offer our employees a tuition reimbursement benefit, employees are able to take more classes due to the discounted per credit fee and accelerate their studies.   HVFCU strives to be an employer of choice, and benefit programs such as this add to our ability to attract a quality workforce that values the opportunity for continuous learning." - Diane M. Allenbaugh, Vice President Human Resources & Organizational Development,
