How To Get By In An Emergency: Personal Loan Or Credit Card?
November 6, 2017
Unexpected expenses, by nature, can come out of nowhere. Your check engine light comes on, and your car demands you put another thousand dollars into keeping it on the road. That cough that just won’t go away turns out to be more serious than you thought. Your air conditioner gives up during the longest heat wave you can remember. No matter what causes these personal catastrophes, they all have one thing in common: They’re expensive.
Seven accomplished college students will each begin the 2017/2018 academic year with a $1,000 scholarship, thanks to Kessler Federal’s annual Lisa J. Stubbs Memorial Scholarship essay contest. Since 1987, Kessler Federal has awarded a total of $114,000 in scholarship funds to college-bound and current students, including adult learners.
Are you ready for stiff competition—and maybe even a bidding war—to get into that oh-so-perfect starter home you’ve been eyeing online? If you’re a Millennial who’s shopping for a home, that’s exactly the type of hot real estate market that Spring 2017 has in store. According to a recent report from Zillow, there were 3% fewer homes on the market this February than the same time last year. In addition, the average price of available homes is 7% higher than in 2016. This turnaround in a once sluggish market has hit Millennials especially hard.
In 1992, the scholarship program was dedicated to Lisa J. Stubbs, a Keesler Federal employee of over 8 years. While employed full time at the credit union, Lisa attended night classes, working toward her degree. Lisa died at the age of 25 after a lifelong struggle with cystic fibrosis. Since Lisa’s courage and determination were an inspiration to all who knew her, the scholarship program was renamed in her honor in hopes that her spirit of achievement would inspire others to reach new heights.
