BrightStar CU student branches spotlighted on radio
MIAMI (2/13/09)--BrightStar CU’s student credit union branches at three schools in the Broward County, Fla., area were profiled in a recent radio story by WLRN/Miami Herald News. Pembroke Lakes Elementary, Flanagan High School and Terra Vella High School have BrightStar branches in their schools. The credit union uses the branches to teach students how to manage their money. Students can open accounts and work at the branches. BrightStar staff members also talk to students in the classroom about auto financing, credit cards and earning interest. One student that WLRN interviewed, Jessica Alvarez, works at the Flanagan High School branch. She plans to attend college to study business or finance. “It’s a really good experience and not everyone gets to do this,” Alvarez told WLRN. To hear the story, use the link.
