First United offers free financial awareness workshop

Students from THS Learning Curve recently completed a financial well-being class called “Dollars and Sense, Watch Your Expense!”  presented by First United Bank of Tecumseh. The workshop helps students, through a series of several simulations, choose a career, buy a home and an auto, purchase groceries and plan for retirement based on the salaries of the occupations they choose. The class was taught by Jennifer Henegar, Director of Financial Well-Being FUB, Amanda Johnson, Spend Life Wisely ambassador and bank president Jill Spencer.  

Lesley Shores, Learning Curve instructor praised students for their enthusiasm “I was so proud of our kids. They really engaged in the lessons and talked about how much they learned  from the experience. Some got a better idea of the pay their chosen career would provide while others had their eyes opened to how much things can cost!”
