Magee HS students take a peek into adulthood at the Reality Fair

11/15/2018

November 14th, Central Sunbelt had the honor of participating in a Realty Fair for the freshmen and sophomore class of Magee High School.  A reality fair is similar to the game of Central Sunbelt at the Reality Fair, Magee High School in Simpson County Mississippilife.  Students take a peek into adulthood, needing to manage a checking account, monthly bills and basic expenses while staying in budget.  These expenses come at the price of their own life decisions as they choose their housing, vehicle, insurance, cell phone, clothing, food, and other essential needs and wants. 

 

This experience can be eye opening and motivating for many as they realize the value of the dollar and the necessity to work monthly payments into a salary based on their own current GPA.  Students learned to make hard decisions, with ideals of living a balanced lifestyle and determination to save and overcome obstacles. Priorities came into play when selecting their house, car, and hobbies while avoiding deficits in their credit union balance.

 

Central Sunbelt was excited for the opportunity to be a part of such a wonderful event and appreciates all the parent and community volunteers, Emily Collins [Business teacher of Magee High School], and Cheryl Oggs of the Mississippi Credit Union Association for coming together to make a successful event.

 

If you are interested in hosting a Realty Fair for your school or school district, please reach out to Central Sunbelt Federal Credit Union.  We would love the opportunity to bring more Realty Fairs to students in our local communities!
