|Blue Bell Creameries
It all started on a hot summer day in 1907 when local farmers decided to establish the Brenham Creamery Company and make butter from excess cream brought in by area farmers. A few years later, the creamery began making ice cream and delivering it to neighbors by horse and wagon. It was in 1930 that the company changed its name to Blue Bell Creameries after the native Texas bluebell wildflower.www.bluebell.com

TTCU Federal Credit Union
Established in 1934 as Tulsa Teachers Credit Union, TTCU Federal Credit Union is the second largest credit union in Oklahoma. TTCU was founded in the midst of the Great Depression. After years of booming success with the discovery of oil at the turn of the century, Tulsa faced dire circumstances after the stock market crash of 1929 and the subsequent East Texas oil discovery in 1930. Little money was to be had, and the few banks that had money weren’t lending it out. Despite hard times and little money, education did not grind to a halt. Earning salaries as little as $100 a month, while still expected to dress in suits and ties and proper dresses, no group of professionals needed financial services more than teachers.
Thus, the creation of Tulsa Teachers Credit Union.
More than 80 years later, TTCU is a $1.7 billion financial institution with a full complement of depository, lending and financial advisory services. As a not-for-profit organization, our financial success is returned to our membership in the form of low-rate savings accounts. The membership of TTCU is over $120,000 strong and is made up of teachers, school faculty, administrators, staff, students and more than 600 affiliated groups.
Over the years, we have expanded and changed our membership and qualification standards, locations and even our name – but we haven’t strayed from our underlining principle of serving our members.
A public independent school district, as well as the oldest and largest technology center in Oklahoma’s Career Tech System, Tulsa Tech was founded in 1965 as part of Tulsa Public Schools. Tulsa Tech purchased its single campus (now the Lemley Campus) from Tulsa Public Schools and became an independent school district in 1973.
Tulsa Tech offers a wide range of opportunities to prepare students for success in a career. With six campuses in the Tulsa metro area, a Tulsa Tech campus is never too far away.
