Aberdeen Proving Ground Federal Credit Union, Aberdeen, Md., announced a new business partnership with Bay View Elementary School in North East, Md. The partnership was announced during BVES’s Spring Fling Night by Principal Jenni Hammer. Tina Mike, assistant vice president of financial education, and Digna Barretto, financial literacy educator represented APGFCU. With this partnership, APGFCU will make financial education presentations in classrooms for every grade level, host free money management seminars for parents, school staff and community members and provide recognition and reward incentives for student and school achievement. Since 1995, APGFCU has partnered with five other schools in Cecil and Harford counties providing free financial literacy programs and wealth-building resources to youth and adults, tailored to the needs of the school community. APGFCU received the inaugural Lifetime Achiever Award in 2011 by the national Education Credit Union Council in recognition of its long-term strategy for delivering financial education. Last year, the credit union delivered nearly 430 financial presentations to over 10,150 students in Cecil and Harford counties.
