BrightStar CU student program on IFox NewsI
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (1/12/09)--BrightStar CU, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., was recently featured by Fox News for having three student branches inside of Florida schools. BrightStar has two high school branches and one elementary school branch. The story focused on the branch inside of Flanagan High School in Pembroke Pines, Fla. The branch helps students learn the importance of saving, Fox News said. Fox interviewed several individuals, including one Flanagan High School senior, who admitted that many young people and adults don’t know how to manage their money. Florida is one of many states that does not require students to take a money management class to graduate from high school. BrightStar CU hopes to open more student branches in the future, Fox said.
