Youth Week Testimonial Spotlight: Theresa Bowlin
"I am strongly in favor of teaching financial literacy in my classroom. It is important for my students to understand the basic fundamentals of sound money management prior to graduating. The hands on approach that I've utilized provides them with practical, 'real life' experiences, that I believe will benefit them later on. The impact of teaching financial literacy to youth has far reaching consequences beyond the classroom."
Higher Ed Week Testimonial Spotlight: Amanda Bradac
"As a college student and education major, it is important that I have a good understanding of how to manage my finances. When I graduate, I know that I will have major expenses such as a new car and an apartment. I plan to start saving now so that I can afford these items. As an educator, I will make sure that my students also have a good understanding of wise money management. This is an important life skill for all ages – kindergarten through college."
Families Week Testimonial Spotlight: Thornborrow Family
"Our daughters are at the perfect age to learn the concept of 'Save, Share, Spend'.
We started savings accounts for them when they were babies. As they got older, we taught them the value of saving for the special things they wanted. We are so excited to add the sharing concept to their financial literacy background. As a family, we plan to identify a local charity that we can 'share' our resources."
Seniors Week Testimonial Spotlight: John & Linda Rousseau
"Now that we are retired, we like to travel. We appreciate the valuable tips UECU provides about protecting our identity when planning a trip. We always feel like the credit union is watching out for us. They know us by name and are vigilant when it comes to watching activity on our accounts. We have worked hard to build our good credit and know that we are well taken care of at United Educators Credit Union."
