First United Bank is donating Ramsey Solutions’ Foundations in Personal Finance curriculum to high schools located in 21 different communities across the state of Oklahoma. Foundations in Personal Finance is the premier curriculum for teaching financial literacy to students.
Schools in Oklahoma include Macomb High School, Tecumseh Senior High School, Asher Public School, Seminole High School and Wewoka High School.
“I am so excited for the opportunity to help our young leaders in our communities to learn to win with money. If I knew then what I know now, I would be able to help so many more people,” said Jennifer Henagar, VP of Financial Well-Being at First United Bank. “At First United, we are committed to providing our communities with the awareness, education, support, and resources to help them face financial challenges and reach their financial goals.”
Personal finance expert Dave Ramsey created Foundations in Personal Finance, an easy to use, turn-key school curriculum that teaches students the value of saving, spending and giving to guide them down the path of financial literacy.
More than three million students have taken Foundations in Personal Finance in middle schools, high schools and universities nationwide. Foundations in Personal Finance can be used as a primary or supplemental resource to fulfill requirements in mathematics, economics, family consumer science, business mathematics and personal finance.
