Abound holds ribbon cutting for financial learning center at South Warren High School
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Abound Credit Union hosted a ribbon-cutting on Tuesday to celebrate its first ever high school financial learning center.
The financial learning center at South Warren High School opened last June and will be open during lunchtime for the 2022-23 school year. Warren County Public Schools stated the center is led by students with continuous guidance from members of the professional Abound team.
Through this financial learning center, all South Warren High School students will have the opportunity to increase their financial knowledge and practice good financial habits, such as opening and regularly adding to a savings account. According to WCPS, the students who run the center will also gain professional skills and leadership abilities, which will prepare them for future careers.
“We’re thrilled to celebrate Abound’s Spartan Financial Learning Center and the real-world learning and experiences it will make available to students,” says Ray Springsteen, president and CEO of Abound Credit Union. “By working closely with South Warren High School’s financial literacy and marketing classes, the credit union is supporting educators and students as they make connections between classroom learning and future life skills.”
