CUs Beetle helping spread fin ed
REXBURG, Idaho (3/18/10)--Beehive FCU, Rexburg, Idaho, is driving back in time and using a 1972 stretch Volkswagen Beetle to attract younger members to the credit union, according to local media. Beehive wants to help young people become more financially independent, said KPVI.com. If credit union members are financially successful, then credit unions will be financially successful, Shane Berger, Beehive FCU CEO, told the news service. Parents have an obligation to teach their children financial responsibility, and so do schools, Berger added. The credit union is not trying to replace schools or parents, but rather is trying to supplement whatever children learn in school, he said. KPVI also interviewed Thomas Cottam, 18, who said that in high school, in a math class one day, he had a 15 minute lesson on finances. “That was about it,” he told the news service.
