|On Tuesday, April 24, FirstBank associates Mark Carlton, Jennifer Starrett, Demetrie Listovitch and Steve Lanham participated in “Teach Children to Save Day” at Providence Christian Academy in Murfreesboro.
The team worked with the students to teach them how to make good decisions with their money and the difference between needs and wants. They also explained how to identify expenses, demonstrate ways to cut spending and show how to maintain bank accounts.
On Wednesday, April 25, additional team members Chuck Lewis, Leigh Ann Maxwell and Geoffrey Herring visited the students at Erma Siegel Elementary in Murfreesboro to share the excitement of savings with them. FirstBank is proud to partner each year with the American Bankers Association and help educate our youth.
Teach Children to Save Day is a component of the national Teach Children to Save campaign.
The campaign aims to raise awareness about the important role that banks and bankers play in helping young people develop lifelong savings habits.
So far it’s reached more than 5 million young people with the help of some 100,000 plus banker volunteers.
