My story started during my first year of marriage when I decided to go back to school to pursue my dream. It was the second best decision I made that year! It was difficult to leave my full-time job and scary to “start over,” but luckily getting a student loan at my credit union eased the stress of such a big decision. I had such a positive experience in college and grew not only professionally, but personally. Even better, my education allowed me to get a job that I love at a place that I love earning an income that allows me to help support my family and invest in our future. My college education was such a blessing and I couldn’t have done it without my credit union.
