Mauldin, SC — MTC Federal Credit Union is proud to announce its continued partnership with Mauldin High School for the second annual Reality Check Event. This event marks the second year of a five-year commitment between MTC Federal and Mauldin High School to empower students with essential financial literacy skills.

Last year, the Reality Check Event saw the participation of 300 students who engaged in a live financial literacy simulation. Students had the opportunity to navigate real-life financial scenarios, gaining insights into budgeting, managing expenses, and making informed financial decisions. The event received overwhelmingly positive feedback from students, volunteers, and teachers alike, underscoring its importance in equipping the next generation with crucial life skills.

"Empowering students with financial education is at the core of our mission at MTC Federal Credit Union," said Susan Bennett, Chief Operating Officer at MTC Federal. "We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Mauldin High School for the second consecutive year. The Reality Check Event provides students with hands-on experience and practical knowledge that will serve them well as they transition into adulthood."

Financial literacy plays a vital role in shaping the future of young individuals. By providing students with the tools and knowledge to make informed financial decisions, MTC Federal and Mauldin High School are investing in the success and well-being of the community. The skills acquired during the Reality Check Event will not only benefit students in their immediate future but also lay a solid foundation for their long-term financial stability and success.

MTC Federal looks forward to another successful Reality Check Event on Friday, April 5, 2024, and remains committed to supporting financial education initiatives that make a positive impact on the lives of students in Mauldin and beyond.
