CALHOUN — Bowater Employees Credit Union (BECU) and Lee University are offering a workshop about “Cutting College Costs” on Aug. 27 at 7 p.m.

The event is open to the community and will be presented at the Rose Lecture Hall on Lee University Campus.

This event should be attended by any high school students or parents of high school students planning to attend college in the future, or for any students entering college in the fall and their parents.

Parents and students will learn how to save thousands and avoid financial traps when sending kids to college.

Topics include Selecting the Right School, Choosing the Right Major, Mistakes Students Often Make, Funding Options Students Often Ignore, and Costly Traps to Avoid.

The information will be presented by Laura Coleman, accredited financial counselor from LFE Institute.

BECU is sponsoring the event in conjunction with Lee University; there is no cost to attend.

“Financial Education is a part of our mission,” stated Kim Gunter of Bowater Employees Credit Union. “We regularly offer financial seminars for our members, but this is such an important and timely topic that we wanted to open it up to the entire community.”
