Autumn Schneider, Blue Cross Blue Shield and Blue Care Network of Michigan

“We have invited MET to the yearly college fair we host for our employees several times and will continue to do so. The reality is that a major factor in making college decisions is the financial aspect. MET helps parents figure out how to make affording college and the possibility of debt-free college a reality for their children. Helping our employees to become educated about this wonderful option is a no-brainer for us at Blue Cross Blue Shield and Blue Care Network of Michigan.”

Kelley Peel, Reeths-Puffer Intermediate Muskegon, MI

“As a counselor of 5th & 6th graders, I think having parents understand that they can save for a semester or for all four years is important.  The flexibility in these savings plans & tax deduction is a wonderful gift to young learners.  Parents are also giving the message that they believe in their kids’ academic aspirations.”
