Through FMPS’ Adopt-a-School program, Summit Credit Union and La Follette High School have joined forces to create new learning experiences for students. In 2011, Summit Credit Union became the first in-school credit union in the Madison area. At this branch, two La Follette students are employed along with one student intern.
Summit staff also provides financial education classes to students along with speakers for marketing classes. This Adopt-a-School partnership not only provides a career opportunity for several students, but also informative and practical financial advice and education that they can transfer into their everyday lives and use to prepare for the future.
