AVCU debuts fin lit concerts today
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (11/5/10)--Heritage Family CU in Rutland, Vt., and the Association of Vermont Credit Unions (AVCU) will present Vermont’s first Concert for Financial Literacy today at the Stafford Technical Center in Rutland. Part of AVCU’s EconomyOfMe project, the Concert for Financial Literacy will feature musicians Scott McKenna and Nyke Van Wyk performing on the guitar and violin, while promoting financial literacy (Newslines Express Oct. 29). The concert will also kick off Heritage Family’s next step in the promotion of financial education at the Stafford Technical Center & Rutland High School. The credit union has worked with the center for more than a decade through Heritage Family’s student-run branch. It will enter the classroom to provide a starting point in financial education for every student. Earlier this year, Heritage Family launched HFCUelements.com, a website featuring articles, videos and more, with the purpose of educating teens. “A solid financial education as early as possible is so important for students being successful with their finances later on,” said Mark Grossarth, Heritage Family’s assistant vice president of marketing. “Now, we are looking forward to working with Stafford to help prepare every student, not just the ones involved with the student credit union, for the real world with an introduction to financial education and continued opportunities to increase their literacy.”
