Lake students learning financial literacy thanks to partnership

Press Staff Writer

        Lake Local Schools and Sun Federal Credit Union are partnering to offer a unique opportunity to the district’s high school students.
        On Fridays, during the lunch periods, Lake High School students have the opportunity to open accounts, make deposits and withdrawals, and complete other transactions at a student-run credit union, under the supervision of Sun Federal Credit Union employees.
        The students will also be conducting a question of the week, which provides an opportunity to learn more about financial literacy and offers the chance to win a gift card.
        “We are very excited to provide this opportunity to our students, which will allow them the opportunity to experience the day-to-day operations of a credit union, and also allow them to share their financial knowledge with others,” said Lisa Feather, the district’s director of communications. “This also allows us to reach out to students and help them become financially responsible with their money.”
        Students participating in the project include Chelsea Szegedi, Rebekkah Schober, Aubrey Pence, Olivia Helton, Madeline Helt, Michael Tolles, Micah Perry, Megan Pacer, Makenzy Wilson, Kennedy Eckman, Daniella Perez and Kaiden Reed.
