Our History

Our story began on February 25, 1948 when Federal Charter #5648 was granted to the first 11 members of Pasadena School FCU. The following month, on March 11, the first five Board Members, John Peachey, Ernesteen Milstead, Carroll Teague, Mrs. Haydon Sypert and Marjorie Reeder, conducted the credit union’s first Board Meeting. The Directors set the hours as 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm on the 2nd and 3rd working days following paydays to accept deposits and book loans.



Gulf Coast Educators FCU is a strong, leading financial institution among credit unions in the greater Houston area. You can view our most recent financials by clicking the “Financials” link at the bottom on the page, or you can view our annual reports below.
