CU System
CU educators reached 389000 students in 08-09
COLUMBIA, S.C. (8/24/09)--Credit unions educated nearly 400,000 students during the 2008-2009 school year, according to data collected by the National Youth Involvement Board (NYIB). Credit unions taught financial management to 388,843 students in 12,652 presentations despite 19 fewer presenters reporting data this year. The totals are an increase of 3.9% for students and 12.5% over 2007 and 2008 statistics. Over five years, credit unions are increasing their presentations by an average of 12.9% annually. However, the number of presenters this past year dropped 3.59%, NYIB said. NYIB Chair Brandon Pugh said he hopes credit unions will reach 400,000 students next year. “Past performance certainly puts 400,000 in reach,” Pugh said. “With many state-level mandates taking hold and nationwide attention (in financial literacy) at its peak, credit unions should have plenty of opportunities. We look forward to seeing their reports come in at www.nyib.org.” Rachel Parrent of Vantage CU, Bridgeton, Mo., conducted the most classroom presentations--469. Marsha Lunden of Desert Schools CU, Phoenix, reached the most students--15,038--in the 2008-09 reporting year. The NYIB “Top Classroom Presenter”--the person with the greatest percentage increase in classroom presentations over the previous year--was Anissa Arthenayake of OSU FCU, Corvallis, Ore. During the 2008-09 reporting year, Arthenayake made 298 presentations, or 308% more presentations than she made in 2007-08. Michelle Merkley of Keystone FCU, West Chester, Pa., reported the highest percentage increase in the number of presentations she offered to students--3,769. The figure is 219.4% more than last year.
