MONTGOMERY – Max Credit Union broke ground on an Auburn regional branch which will serve customers in Lee County.

The branch, which will have both lobby and drive-thru service, will have a concierge greet customers and direct them to kiosks, staffed by employees. The branch will also have a refreshment center that contains coffee and bottled water and a business center. It will be the company’s second branch in Lee County.



MONTGOMERY – Auburn University at Montgomery signed an agreement with Lurleen B. Wallace Community College, formalizing a partnership aimed at better supporting students interested in transferring to AUM.

Auburn University at Montgomery Chancellor John G. Veres III and LBWCC President Herbert H.J. Riedel agreed to:

> Work closely together on student advisement, creating a pathway for students who want to earn a bachelor’s degree to easily transfer into AUM.

> Allow LBWCC students to “reverse transfer” credits back to LBWCC and receive an associate’s degree while completing a bachelor’s at AUM.

> Provide scholarships to incoming AUM students.

Beginning in fall 2014, all LBWCC students transferring to AUM with a minimum 3.0 grade-point average will be provided a $1,000 to $2,500 scholarship. The top LBWCC student transferring to AUM, as selected by the LBWCC administration, will receive tuition and fees for two years.

With campuses in Andalusia, Greenville, Luverne and Opp, Lurleen B. Wallace Community College serves Butler, Covington, Crenshaw, Coffee and Geneva counties as well as parts of the Florida Panhandle. LBWCC offers career-oriented certificates and associate degrees.
