Money and credit card debt are big problems for millions of adults in this country. Thanks to a program at Highland Park High School, students will be better prepared to deal with those subjects as young adults. Seventy students in the EverFi Kansas Financial Scholars Program were awarded certificates last week for completion of the web based program. The program is intended to empower young people with skills needed to make sound financial decisions. Such topics as credit cards, student loans, mortgages and credit scores are covered in the program.
This is the first year for the EverFi program at Highland Park High School. Representatives from Capital City Bank and the Kansas Securities Commissioners Office were on hand to congratulate the students on their successful completion of the program.
