English Composition students take part in Lunch and Learn

September 10, 2019

Cowley College students in Julie Kratt's English Composition Supplemental Seminar class were recently treated to a Lunch and Learn session sponsored by Mid-American Credit Union.

Speakers Jeff Witherspoon, Executive Director of Consumer Credit Counseling Service, and Heather Schwaiger, Employer Partnerships Specialist with Mid-American Credit Union, presented  “Things to Know Before I Leave: A Student Survival Workshop” and also provided a meal for students to enjoy as they learned about topics ranging from resume writing and interviewing tips to how to save money on cars, clothes, and food to how to establish credit and check a credit report.

Kratt noted, “We are so appreciative of Employer Partnerships Representative Rachel Thompson for making all of the arrangements and for Jeff and Heather for sharing this incredibly valuable information with our students. There is so much financial misinformation available to young adults that spending an hour with two experts can truly make a world of difference in these students' lives.”
