West Lafayette, Ind. – September 17, 2010 – Purdue Employees Federal Credit Union (PEFCU) announces a new way for Harrison High School and Jefferson High School students, parents and fans to show their school spirit: custom, student-designed debit card designs.

The new cards are original designs created by Harrison High School student Santiago Grandlienard and Jefferson High School graduate Mark Felix as part of a high school debit card design contest hosted by PEFCU. Grandlienard’s design features “Raider Pride” with abstract art in blue and orange. Felix’s design showcases the Jefferson Broncho mascot with red and black art. Their designs were chosen by PEFCU marketing staff based on creativity, school pride and originality. For creating the winning designs, Grandlienard and Felix each won a $500 PEFCU Visa® gift card.

The Harrison and Jefferson card designs are now available at the Harrison High School Branch, Monday-Friday, from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.; at the Jefferson High School Branch, Monday-Friday, from 7-8 a.m. and 11:20 a.m.-1:25 p.m.; and at all other branches during normal business hours.
