First New York Federal Credit Union Treats KID$ Banker Just Like a Millionaire
Emily Testa, a second grade student at George D. Ryder Elementary School in the Cobleskill-Richmondville Central School District, was treated like a Millionaire for a Day by First New York Federal Credit Union.
First New York Federal Credit Union has been teaching thousands of area students for years to save their money through its KID$ (Keep Investing Dollars Savings) Program. To celebrate the students’ success, the credit union randomly selected a school banker to be treated like a millionaire. As the Millionaire for a Day, Emily Testa and her classmates were treated to a pizza lunch and ice cream social. Emily had an on-air interview with 99.5 The River on Facebook Live. In addition, Emily received a backpack full of school supplies, a gift certificate to Dave & Busters and a millionaire t-shirt.
Emily’s favorite part of student banking is “Getting stickers and prizes.”
