Shay had a great time speaking at Hoover. Go Cardinals!
I had the honor of going back to my alma mater and speaking to the entire senior class about personal finance. We had groups of almost 100 kids come in for hour-long workshops. They were surprised to learn that they would not be able to credit cards after they graduate and thrilled to learn about credit unions. I had a great time working with the staff and students at Hoover and I look forward to working with them again.
