Genisys Sponsors Waterford College and Financial Aid Night

AUBURN HILLS, MI (March 7, 2013) – Genisys Credit Union was the presenting sponsor for the Waterford College and Financial Aid Night, which was held at Waterford Mott High School in February.

The event was a huge success with over 800 people in attendance. The seminar provided an opportunity for Waterford School District parents and students to meet one-on-one with over 30 colleges, trade schools, military, and Waterford Library representatives. Four breakout sessions were held, which covered what college admissions representatives are looking for in new students, the Oakland to Oakland program which allows students to attend Oakland Community College and Oakland University simultaneously, selecting a college, and financial aid FAQs. Patrick O’Conner, author of College Is Yours, even spoke at one of the break out sessions.

“This event provided a great way for students and parents to prepare for higher education,” said Jackie Buchanan, President/CEO. “With the rising costs of tuition, being organized and knowledgeable about the process helps families stick to a manageable budget.”

Loan manager, Jessica Roshek, was onsite to hand out financial information and discuss student loan options available at Genisys Credit Union.

“With the generous support of Genisys, the Waterford College & Financial Aid night continues to grow each year, providing our community with essential college information,” said Tina Mitchell, Career Preparations Technician at Waterford Mott High School. “As a result, an increasing amount of scholarships and grants can be awarded our students, providing an opportunity for more of them to attend college.”
