Mohonasen board mulls program that makes cents

The goal for our students is to get something meaningful out of this, Braiman said.

Any student would be able to apply for a position at the bank, but they first would have to be accepted into Braiman's internship program. Students would need good grades and attendance, three recommendations and an interview.

Once accepted into the internship program the student could then apply for a position at the credit union branch, which requires going through an interview process with First New York. After the students are selected, they would then go through a six-week training course.

Braiman said she worked closely with the credit union to bring this program to the district. Braiman said she knows that 12 students in her college level accounting class would be interested in working at the school's bank branch.

The branch would only be open for Mohonasen students, faculty and staff and those within the Mohonasen community.

"I know that some of the administrators and faculty members are asking when this is going to open, so it's a good thing for everyone," Braiman said.

If the board decides to approve project the credit union branch could open by the middle of October.
