students learn about personal savings, budgeting and credit history during financial seminar

May 1, 2014

 Students in Monticello High School’s financial decision making class participated in a financial seminar hosted by Latisha Rodriguez, manager of member and business development services at the USAlliance Federal Credit Union. As part of the credit union’s community outreach, Ms. Rodriguez contacted the classroom teacher for permission to share meaningful information pertaining to personal savings, budgeting and credit history.

As stated by Ms. Rodriguez, “as a local credit union, USAlliance FCU wants to ensure that we are serving those within our community (‘people helping people’), whether its providing standard banking information or other free services such as the financial seminar that was conducted for your group.”

The guest speaker answered many questions from the students who were eager to learn more about how credit unions operate, as well as career opportunities that may be available. There was much dialogue between Ms. Rodriguez and the students.

 After the session was over, she exclaimed “what a great group of students with drive and ambition!”
