By Roger Weeder First Coast News ST. AUGUSTINE, FL -- Student banking is now a reality at Bartram Trail High as the school and Vystar Credit Union have teamed up to teach finance. Six student managers were trained over the summer by Vystar staff and six tellers conduct business when the center is open two hours a day. Diana Richmond is one of the branch managers. She enjoys learning the ins and outs of business. "What really goes on behind the teller, " is just part of the learning curve she says. This year's managers will be involved in recruiting staff and training future managers. St. Johns County school superintendent Dr. Joseph Joyner took part in the ribbon cutting ceremonies at Bartram Trail. "That's what business can do for us, actually provide real life experience for our students," Joyner told First Coast News. "It's invaluable."
