Tinker FCU Financial Educators Help to Improve Financial Literacy in Oklahoma
Tuesday, January 21, 2014 6:35 AM

Three members of the Tinker FCU financial empowerment department will serve in leadership roles with other organizations this year, working to improve and promote financial literacy in Oklahoma.

Cody Buchholz, assistant vice president and manager of financial empowerment, has been named to the Oklahoma Council on Economic Education board of directors. He will also serve on the fundraising committee.

Giovanni Monterroso, financial educator, will sit on the board of directors as the education chair for the Oklahoma Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy. He will also act as project leader for the organization’s annual Personal Finance in Oklahoma Conference in 2014.

JR Webster, financial educator, has been nominated as the vice president of the board for the Oklahoma Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy. Additionally, he has been selected as a Credit Union Young Professional Advisor for the Cornerstone Credit Union League.

“We take the financial literacy of Oklahomans seriously and are proud to be aligned with other not-for-profit organizations that have the same mission,” said Buchholz.

The primary focus of Tinker FCU Financial Empowerment is to deliver financial education to schools, businesses and community organizations. Buchholz, Monterroso and Webster all received Financial Counselor certification through the Credit Union National Association.


Helpful Resources: The Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation’s FOCUS Summit Feb. 6-7, at the Doubletree Galleria Hotel in Dallas. Open to all credit union professionals, community leaders and educators, this two-day event is an opportunity for financial education advocates to network, share best practices, learn about available resources, as well as explore proven techniques and strategies for deploying financial education into their local schools and communities.
