Hi there! My name is Nester and I’m the new mascot for the NEST 529 College Savings Plan. I’m here to help you talk with your little loved ones about the importance of saving for their college education. So, when the time comes for them to leave the nest and go to college, they can soar high to reach their dreams.
Since I’m new, here’s a little about me: I was hatched in a nest on the branch of an enormous Cottonwood tree in Nebraska. Even though I’m young, I’ve got big dreams — but I’m not totally sure what I want to be when I grow up. I could be a carpenter and build nests for birds across the state. Or an accountant who helps friends save seeds for the winter. Oh, or a doctor who helps fix the broken wings of my fellow fowl friends. There are so many options and I know furthering my education will help me succeed no matter what I decide to do!
Even though I’m not sure what I want to be when I graduate high school, I know I love to help. One time, I walked an old ornate box turtle across a gravel road. Now that was an adventure. Being able to help is why I’m excited to be the official NEST 529 mascot.
My friends at NEST 529 also love to help people — like that time they wrote an article to help you learn how much you should be saving for college. I know thinking about the future can be a little scary, but I’ve learned you don’t have to plan for it on your own! My NEST 529 friends are always ready to answer your questions.
I’m really looking forward to being NEST 529’s official mascot and can’t wait to start helping all kids learn how important it is to start saving for the future.
See you in the sky!
