Leading credit union sponsors commencement ceremony photography for future leaders of the U.S. military
San Diego CA— Miramar Federal Credit Union (MFed), a 64-year-old financial cooperative that provides support to the San Diego military community, will sponsor the San Diego State University (SDSU) 2016 Army ROTC Commencement Ceremony on the USS Midway on May 13, 2016 by providing graduates with complementary photographs of the graduation ceremony to document their achievement. As part of a two-year partnership with SDSU, MFed pledged a $10,000 Veteran Book Scholarship to the Barron Veterans Center at SDSU earlier this year and will continue to support the SDSU military and veteran students over the course of the next school year.
“At Miramar Federal Credit Union, we have a tremendous passion for supporting initiatives that build up the next generation of leaders in our country,” said Paul Socia, CEO and President of Miramar Federal Credit Union. “We wanted to find a way to support new service members and SDSU has one of the best ROTC programs in the state. We see our sponsorship as an investment in our military; we aim to help provide these future officers with the best training and opportunities to further develop their skills.”
This is only one of Miramar Federal Credit Union’s many continuous initiatives to support San Diego’s young veteran students and military communities. Earlier this month, MFed partnered with Cal State University San Marcos and lead two financial planning courses to transitioning veteran students. MFed also has an ongoing partnership with with Pro Kids | The First Tee of San Diego and delivers financial literacy workshops to middle school members of Pro Kids’ Academy throughout San Diego County. These are all pieces in Miramar Federal Credit Union’s mission to shed light on financial planning and teach all of San Diego financial literacy and educate people on smart ways to get ahead.
