As a credit union, MACU focuses heavily on serving the local community. “We understand the importance of education, but with the rising costs, we also know the burden it puts on some families to pay for it,” said Frank Beachnau, MACU President. “On behalf of our members, we are honored to help local students achieve their academic goals.”
