The cruise ship Portland Spirit will play host to Gesa Credit Union's annual high school branch orientation called "Cruise To Success."
Gesa operates high school branches in all seven public high schools in the Tri-Cities. About 75 to 100 people from those schools and Gesa will board the Portland Spirit on Monday for an evening of credit union orientation and training.
Rachael Wescott, a junior at Kamiakin who is manager of the Kamiakin Credit Union Branch, said she appreciates the knowledge she has gained through her work at Gesa.
"I like how I can get teller experience and also stay in my school. This experience is really fun and will give me great career opportunities. I don't know why anyone would pass up this opportunity," she said.
Never miss a local story.
This event will serve as an informative orientation for students who run their respective high school credit unions.
The Portland Spirit will be providing a two-hour dinner cruise, and Gesa credit union staff will be onboard, training the high school branch students.
