“It is exciting to support a program that allows local children in our community to work closely with college-aged students. These children are being exposed to experiences that show the opportunity they will have through continuing their education.”— April Clobes, MSUFCU President and CEO

So…everyone is a winner, and one organization is a BIG winner!
