Ferndale, Michigan – Preparing students for the future is very important, especially when it comes to knowing about the basics of savings and credit.

with Lorraine Kusch, Mercy High School Teacher
Credit Union ONE recently had the opportunity to help out a local high school in Farmington Hills.
Seniors in Instructor Lorraine Kusch’s class at Mercy High School are required to complete a Life Skills class as part of their curriculum. Credit Union ONE Farmington Branch Manager Paul Tocco was contacted regarding sponsoring the materials needed for the financial literacy portion of the class. During the conversation, Tocco and Kusch decided that it would be a great benefit to these students if Tocco could also make a presentation on financial basics.
On March 27th, nineteen Mercy High School students participated in a very interactive presentation given by Mr. Tocco. “I appreciated the openness and honesty of these students,” said Paul Tocco. “Being able to participate in community outreach and bring the message of good financial stewardship to our youth is key in establishing good habits for their future.”
According to Mercy High School Teacher Lorraine Kusch, “The class really enjoyed the presentation given by Credit Union ONE. Paul Tocco gave the students very practical information on banking, which will help them to make smarter decisions in their lives going forward. We are looking forward to the opportunity to have Paul come back and present to our class again next year.”
