Credit Union ONE Prepares Youth for Financial Future

FERNDALE, MI – Recently Credit Union ONE visited a local high school and gave them some much needed information on the basics of financial fitness.

As part of their curriculum, seniors at Farmington Mercy High School are required to complete a Life Skills class.  Instructor Lorraine Kusch reached out to Credit Union ONE Farmington Branch Manager Paul Tocco about sponsoring the materials needed for the financial literacy portion of the class.  It was during the conversation that Tocco and Kusch decided that it would be a great benefit to these students if Tocco could make a presentation on financial basics to the class.

On March 12th, twenty-five Mercy High School students participated in a financial presentation given by Mr. Tocco. “I enjoyed sharing general financial knowledge with these students, and genuinely appreciated their open and honest questions,” said Paul Tocco.  “Our participation in community programs such as this helps to establish good financial habits in our youth for their future.”

According to Mercy High School Teacher Lorraine Kusch, “The class really enjoyed the presentation given by Credit Union ONE.  Paul Tocco gave the students excellent information, and they are looking forward to working on the financial booklets provided by the credit union.  We are appreciative of our relationship with Credit Union ONE and its’ anticipated continuation.”
