SOUTH FLORENCE STUDENTS SHOW THEIR CERTIFICATES OF FINANCIAL LITERACY
Anderson Brothers Bank hosted a certification ceremony for the LeTour de Finance, an initiative to bring critical financial literacy education to high school students. Anderson Brothers Bank has partnered with EverFi, Inc., the nation’s leading education technology company, to bring this interactive, web-based financial management program to all high school students at no cost to the schools or taxpayers. The sponsorship also provides all high schools with unlimited access to the financial literacy curriculum. On May 7, Anderson Brothers Bank recognized over 300 students at South Florence High who have earned certification in financial literacy. “Our goal is to help set students on a path to a life of financial responsibility and economic self-reliance,” said Susan Grant, Marketing Officer with Anderson Brothers Bank. “Anderson Brothers Bank is committed to being a solid corporate citizen and supports its communities in many ways.” LeTour de Finance is a 10-unit course that offers 6-8 hours of programming aimed at teaching, assessing and certifying students in a variety of financial topics including credit scores, insurance, credit cards, student loans, mortgages, taxes, stocks, savings, 401k’s and other critical concepts that map to national financial literacy standards. The learning platform tracks knowledge gain as well as students’ attitudes and behaviors on these important issues. Students who successfully complete the course receive certification in Financial Literacy, a valuable mark of distinction on college applications and resumes.
