UTEP Athletics announced a new Kids Club, which features a one-time $25 lifetime membership fee for all children 12 years of age and under. Each youngster will remain in the Kids Club until they age out of the program at 13. It is presented by GECU, and there will be special incentives and discounts for families and members of the credit union. "This unique collaboration will provide a fun experience for children in our community as well as help them grow financially," GECU President and CEO Crystal Long said in the official release.
