Credit for Life Fair, Friday, April 12, 2019 at the Randolph Intergenerational Center
Juniors and seniors participated in the Credit for Life Fair which is a nationally recognized program designed to help high school students develop personal financial management skills that they can use throughout their lives.
Students rotated through a series of tables making financial decisions. They learned about budgeting and assumed the role of a 25 year-old professional. Students made adult decisions about how to spend their monthly income on real-life expenses such as housing, transportation, insurance, food, luxuries, and so much more.
Mr. Davis, Guidance Counselor secured a grant to offer this financial literacy opportunity to our students. He coordinated the fair and did it with many amazing volunteers, faculty and staff.
Thank you to all the volunteers, teachers and staff for making this possible! Working together everyone achieves more.
