Taylor County High School's Cardinal Financial recently celebrated its grand opening with students, faculty, staff and community members.

Alyssa Young is vice president for promotions and Brooke Gregory is vice president for operations.

Katie Long is executive secretary. Andy Finck is public relations director.
