“At NTCC, we believe it is very important for students to learn about financial literacy and to avoid making costly mistakes early in life. Mad City is a fun way for them to get some insight into the cost of living,” Linda Forest, NTCC Financial Literacy Coach, said. “We are very appreciative to East Texas Professional Credit Union for sponsoring and to all of the college employees who volunteered to make the event a success.”
