A new mascot at Greenville Federal Credit Union will give students the opportunity to learn about how to handle their finances. Clark the Owl, a “student in the Greenville County School District,” will help provide opportunities for financial literacy and teach students about spending and saving money, according to the credit union. Clark was named after one of the credit union’s founding members.
“When nine Greenville County School teachers came together to create our credit union, they had a vision and passion for education and financial literacy,” Paul Hughes, Greenville Federal Credit Union president, said in a release. “Clark wants to help students and adults of all ages to better understand the importance of saving money. He knows that by doing this he will make our community even better.”
Clark the Owl will be involved throughout the community, visiting school and credit union sponsored events. Clark will make his first appearance at Westcliffe Elementary School on Friday, Aug. 19.
