Editorial notes CUs creative fin ed efforts
HARRISBURG, Pa. (6/11/09)--Credit unions’ creative efforts working with students to save and invest their earnings was the focus of a recent Harrisburg, Pa., Patriot News editorial. “Tough times can make for timely lessons,” was published Tuesday by the newspaper. The editorial discussed some of the things financial institutions have done in the economy to help youth understand and manage their finances, according to the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (Life is a Highway June 10). Credit unions have “renewed their efforts to explain to students how people make, save and invest their earnings,” the Patriot News said. Some student-run credit unions also have been established across the state that double as learning labs, the newspaper added. “Here’s to the tellers turned teachers now entering the classroom to help our kids build better futures for themselves,” the newspaper said.
