Leominster Credit Union partners with Campus Bound to Benefit Leominster High
Leominster, MA – Leominster Credit Union (LCU) presented a check for $5,000 to the Campus Bound Program to benefit Leominster High School (LHS) students.
Since 2020, Campus Bound experts have provided free support to Leominster High School to help reduce the costs of college. Campus Bound is a team of experienced, passionate college counseling and financial aid professionals working with the Leominster High School Guidance Department to help families successfully navigate the financial aid process and other cost-reduction strategies on their road to higher education. This program is made possible through the sponsorship by Leominster Credit Union.
“LHS is very grateful for the generosity of Leominster Credit Union and the support they show to Campus Bound and building opportunities for our students. This partnership helps LHS students meet their post-high school aspirations,” stated Joshua Romano, Principal, Leominster High School Campus Bound is committed to helping students of all achievement levels to create strong applications and discover their best-fit schools.
“The Campus Bound team was extremely helpful by showing us how to build a budget of what we could afford for college and then how to build a list of affordable colleges our children should apply to,” quoted from a parent of the classes of ‘20, ‘21, ’24. “With their help, we found errors in our Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) that resulted in a substantial increase in aid once we worked with the college financial aid office of our child’s first choice school.”
Counselors at Campus Bound collaborate frequently with students, ensuring that all receive the most up-to-date information and personalized support with this challenging process.
“We regularly look for opportunities to engage and partner with organizations who offer products and services to the communities we serve. Our objective in giving back is to fulfill a need and support an initiative. Given the rising costs associated with attending college, Campus Bound can offer a much-needed comprehensive solution. As a sponsor to this program, we are assisting local students with the opportunity to access resources to help them navigate and attain entry to great schools, find solutions to reduce college expenses and minimize debt,” said Barbara Mahoney, President & CEO, Leominster Credit Union.
