Students at Ring Factory Elementary School in Bel Air recently took part in the annual Junior Achievement program, learning real-life business and financial lessons, as taught by parent volunteers, regular teachers, and employees of Freedom Federal Credit Union.  The program was delivered on April 25 with each class taking part in five educational sessions geared to students in kindergarten through 5th grade.

This is the sixth year that Freedom has supported the Junior Achievement (JA) program at Ring Factory Elementary. Freedom provides a financial sponsorship and this year provided eight Freedom employee volunteers teaching various grade levels.

Freedom is proud of the partnership that it has developed with Junior Achievement of Central Maryland, Ring Factory Elementary and the school’s PTSA.  Rose Ann Lambert, President and Chief Executive Officer of Freedom said, “Freedom looks forward to the continued involvement with the school and JA in teaching these students valuable lessons.  It’s our mission to provide financial literacy in the community, especially for our young students.”
