Another of credit unions’ financial
education initiatives for youth, the brass|STUDENT Program, recently
released its winter issue ofbrass|MAGAZINE, which features
motorcross champion Ashley Fiolek on its cover.
Updates have also been made to the brass|TEACHER RESOURCE CENTERto improve navigation, as well as introduce a new educator
blog that will showcase program news and updates, trends in education
and teacher profiles. This is only the first phase of updates that
should prove helpful to teachers and credit unions that use the teacher
center as a resource.
We love hearing and reporting on these
successes, so keep up the good work!
