FBLA is teaching kids to save!

The group  has officially partnered with Fleetwood bank in July. Their plan is to teach kids from kindergarten to twelfth grade to save. FBLA has many activities planned to promote their message.

The student representatives of this project are Brooke Gorman, Caitlin Bower, and Faith Readinger. All three girls are seniors and are very excited for the project.  

“I hope our project will help inform underclassmen about the importance of saving and financing money wisely,” Gorman said.

“One of our main goals is to teach the importance of saving money, and we also hope to make it to the national competition again this year,” Bower said.

“I am really hoping to spread awareness about the importance of saving in the elementary and middle school, and to make it to nationals,” Readinger said.

Gorman would like to pursue a career in accounting and eventually go into tax law.

The goal of the partnership is to promote safe saving throughout the school, and encourage them to create an account at the Fleetwood Bank. In return, the Fleetwood bank will be assisting the school in educating the students about the bank industry and money management.

FBLA has many activities planned for each grade level. In the elementary school, high school students will be teaching kids about saving and having the kids draw and create their very own bank.

In the middle school, there will be conferences set up to inform the parents about the student savings program. This program is a way for middle schoolers to earn money to put in their accounts based on their good grades. There will also be a savvy saving poster contest that will run until November. The winning poster will be displayed at the Fleetwood Bank.

For the high school, students will be sending FBLA members to the Fleetwood Bank to observe the various branches of the banking industry. All three representatives and business teacher Mrs. Kelly Ackerman, the FBLA club advisor, are very eager to see their project outcome!
