From the Field – Mandarin High School, Jacksonville, FL

Two teachers were awarded with an “Innovation in Financial Education” award from Scott Keith (VP for North/Central FL BB&T). They have used the BB&T Financial Foundations program for three years and have impacted over 900 students. The students now have a better grasp on what can impact their credit score, and the fees that can be associated with signing up for a credit card. After completing the savings module, one student asked his teacher for advice on how he can start saving and where he should be putting his money.
