Financial Literacy  
Over eighty students in banking and financial services and career preparatory classes at Granbury High School recently completed a financial literacy program. Certificates were presented to the classes on May 21, 2014.
Utilizing the EverFi online financial literacy program, students covered material on nine topics: savings; banking; payment, interest rates, and credit cards; credit score; financing higher education; renting vs. owning; taxes and insurance; consumer fraud; and investing. The program is a new media learning platform that uses the latest technology – including video, animation, gaming, and social networking – to bring complex financial concepts to life for today’s digital generation.
“Prosperity Bank makes it possible for us to have access to this program through their funding,” commented GHS teacher Tammy Bodine, who thanked the bank for sponsoring the program for the third year.
On hand for the presentation were bank representatives Jessie Gomez and Kathy Roberts (pictured above).
