Several Little Cypress-Mauriceville administrators attended the “We’re Paying it Forward” luncheon, hosted by Education First Federal Credit Union. EFFCU’s “Pay it Forward” program raises funds through the loans they make.

Anytime a customer takes out a loan, that person can name which campus he or she prefers and Education First donates a percentage to that school in their service area. Community Relations Director Carrie Haskett told the group that over $50,000 was being given away at the luncheon and that the total given from the inception of the program is almost $500,000.
