New debit card program mixes EVSC school pride with a good cause

Posted: Updated:

A new debit card program could help raise money for EVSC schools and boost school pride. 

The EVSC has partnered up with the Evansville Teachers Federal Credit Union to make customized Visa debit cards that have each high schools' logo.
     
It's free to sign up and EVSC will get about 10 percent of the cost to swipe it, that's charged to the business.
   
Superintendent David Smith says some of the money will go into their general fund and the schools will see the rest.
     
He applauds what may be a first-of-its-kind program.
