Partners-In-Education

 josh Hurley Presentation3As part of the Partners-In-Education program with Holmes Junior High, Josh Hurley from Cedar Falls Community Credit Union gave a presentation to Mrs. Adam’s freshman class on Auto Loans.  Mrs. Anderson wanted the students to understand the importance of credit and managing their personal finances.   

Josh told the students that being prepared is the best way to keep car-buying choices and decisions on the right track. He explained to them that they need to examine all aspects of the car-buying process including: understanding the differences between buying and leasing; evaluating used cars; financing and applying for loans; and making on time payments.

According to Sarah, one of the students, “…I learned how much your credit score can affect your life and what you can and cannot do because of it.”   Another student learned, “… that if someone repossesses a car or a house you still have to pay for it.”

According to Josh, “The students were eager and enthusiastic to learn about how to buy a car along with the ins and outs of credit.  They were attentive through the entire session.”

Cedar Falls Community Credit Union was originally chartered in 1958 as a member-owned financial co-operative serving the needs of a local machinists union.  Membership was extended to other groups of employees over the years until in 1982, CFCCU received a community charter.  Our current field of membership includes individuals who live or work in 20 Iowa counties: Allamakee, Benton, Black Hawk, Bremer, Buchanan, Butler, Chickasaw, Clayton, Delaware, Grundy, Fayette, Floyd, Franklin, Hardin, Howard, Linn, Marshall, Mitchell, Tama and Winneshiek.
