Regions Bank, Broadmoor High and Everfi partnered to hold a certification ceremony for the 116 students who completed Everfi: Financial Literacy, as well as those who also completed Ignition, Healthy Relationships and/or Venture. We had several special guests in attendance, including the Director of High Schools Sholanda Simoneaux, Director of Career and Technical Education Ronnie Pocorello, Principal Troy Boatner, and Jump$tart Board President Blaine Grimes. Several students spoke about what EVERFI means to them and how they will use their new knowledge of financial literacy in the future. Teri Thomas from Regions Bank presented the kids with certificates entitling them to free banking until age 25.
