Savings with Mandy and Randy
Our Grade school program is called Savings with Mandy and Randy and is currently used in schools throughout Boyd, Carter, and Greenup counties. The program is geared towards second graders, introducing them to basic saving, counting coins, and the difference between needs and wants. A complimentary guest speaker and a tour of our Main Office is included.
Making the Right Money Moves
Making the right money moves is our high school program targeted to high school juniors and seniors. Typically, area juniors and seniors use this tool in a class. The program covers the basics of handling a checking account, the effects of finance charges on loans and compounding interest on deposits. The importance of managing credit is stressed with sample credit reports reviewed. We feel the most important aspect of this program is for the student to walk away knowing they own their credit history. We make them aware that improper payment of cell phone bills, loan payments, etc. can affect their credit rating. We make them aware of what they will encounter once they head off to college or into the work force and the ease of obtaining credit cards. A complimentary guest speaker and tour of our Main Office is included with his program.
