Treasurer Lynn Fitch and Ingalls Shipbuilding Partnered to Promote College Savings

Pascagoula –
 
Yesterday, Mississippi State Treasurer Lynn Fitch and Ingalls Shipbuilding partnered to promote college savings through payroll deduction.  Ingalls hosted a Mississippi Affordable College Savings (MACS) Program Payroll Deduction Kick-Off Event on March 18 in Pascagoula. For the first time, Ingalls has offered their employees the option of payroll deductions to a MACS account. The Treasurer, along with College Savings Mississippi staff, answered questions and handed-out information to employees throughout the day. Employees had an opportunity at multiple locations to open a MACS account, begin payroll deduction, and enter into a drawing for one of four $50 MACS scholarships. 
 
“I am so grateful to Ingalls Shipbuilding for allowing us to speak with their employees about college savings,” noted Treasurer Fitch. “With partnerships like these, we can continue to help families across the state of Mississippi take advantage of every opportunity to save. Together, we can help these parents and guardians prepare for their child’s future.”
