A special thanks goes out to Charity Newhouse and Jennifer Burris with East Texas Professional Credit Union for sponsoring/hosting the event. 

Students in the NTCC Work4College Program participated in a financial literacy simulation fair this Thursday in the Student Union Building. The event, hosted by East Texas Professional Credit Union, is an exciting, interactive exercise to help students learn more about managing their personal finances. 

"At NTCC, we believe it is very important for students to learn about financial literacy and to avoid

making costly mistakes early in life. The simulation event is a fun way for them to get some insight into the cost of living," Linda Forest, NTCC Financial Literacy Coach, said. "We are very appreciative to East Texas Professional Credit Union for sponsoring and to all of the college employees who volunteered to make the event a success."
