SNBT Teaches Children About Saving Money
The Stephenson National Bank & Trust (SNBT) understands the importance of learning, particularly in teaching children essential money management skills. As advocates for cultivating financial literacy early on, the SNBT staff believes that instilling the value of saving money among children can set them on the path towards a successful future. In celebration of National Teach Children to Save Day during Financial Literacy Month in April, SNBT showcased their commitment to educating young minds and connecting with the community through innovative approaches.
This year, staff members gave presentations at schools in Marinette, Menominee, Stephenson, Wausaukee, and Crivitz to share money saving lessons with K–8th grade students. Lisa Hower, financial literacy coordinator, expressed her delight in the success of the Teach Children to Save program, which has been a highly rewarding experience for both her and SNBT volunteers.
“Witnessing the next generation’s enthusiasm for saving money and securing their financial future has been a joy for myself and the program’s volunteers,” said Hower. “The positive impact this initiative has on children in our community is something I love about the program. The time and effort invested in the program have proved to be worthwhile, and we are thrilled to be in the classroom engaging with students and seeing them comprehend the significance of saving money for their future.”
