FCPS and Nymeo Federal Credit Union have renewed a partnership agreement to support FCPS students, staff and community.

As part of the partnership agreement, Nymeo Federal Credit Union will continue to sponsor the FCPS Community Resource Fair, and a “Millionaires Club” to support a financial literacy program for students.

“Nymeo has been a long-time partner in sponsoring programs like “Millionaires Club” and “Start-Up Frederick,” said Kim Day, FCPS Elementary Social Studies Curriculum Specialist and STEM coordinator. “We deeply appreciate the continued support and collaboration with Nymeo, as we work together to provide financial literacy opportunities for all students and prepare them for lifelong success.”

Founded in 1933, Nymeo Federal Credit Union now serves more than 23,000 members in Frederick and Montgomery Counties.

“We are pleased to again formalize our partnership with FCPS,” said Nymeo President and CEO Vicki Johnston. “As a community credit union based in Frederick, we have created products and services to specifically help FCPS staff and families. Nymeo is committed to supporting education, especially in financial literacy.”

Through this partnership, Nymeo will provide youth apprenticeship opportunities for students interested in careers in finance. This endeavor will help FCPS expand its opportunities for students seeking real-life business experience.

 “It’s very exciting to partner with Nymeo though Youth Apprenticeship,” said Eric Bokinsky, FCPS CTE Coordinator for Work-Based Learning. “One of my goals has been to change the face of apprenticeship, which is so commonly associated with the construction and automotive trades, and open up this opportunity across all career clusters.”
