These Battle Creek-area high school students spent Martin Luther King Jr. Day at a special financial education class at United Educational Credit Union.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day was not a day off for 16 high school students who spent that Monday at United Educational Credit Union in Battle Creek, Mich., for a day of financial education. The class focused on the basics of personal finance, following curriculum from the National Endowment for Financial Education. Along with some important information, the students were peppered with food, fun and prizes throughout the day, including a $25 bonus and a completion certificate. “We applaud each of these young people, and the adults in their life who encouraged them to attend,” said Fran Godfrey, president/CEO of the $110 million United Educational CU.  “This is a positive commitment to their future.”
