GROVE CITY – To educate students and their families about the basics of banking and credit, Rep. Tedd Nesbit (R-Mercer/Butler) will hold a Financial Literacy Seminar on Thursday, April 19, at Grove City High School.
“For today’s young adults, the concept of banking can seem overwhelming. Managing money is difficult, especially for young people whose income is limited even when their bills, expenses and debts are growing,” Nesbit said. “Our next generation must be aware of the basics and become educated in the fundamentals of banking and economics. Otherwise, they risk damaging their credit scores, not to mention future jobs, mortgages and lower insurance rates.”
The seminar will be led by an expert from the Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities and will focus on spending plans, prioritizing debt, banking basics and understanding credit scores.
The seminar will begin at 6 p.m. and last for about two hours. There is no charge to attend.
This is geared directly toward young adults and their parents. Attendees should please register with Nesbit’s office at (724) 458-4911 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
by April 10.
The high school is located at 511 Highland Ave., Grove City
“We believe a seminar like this will help educate our next generation about financial literacy,” Nesbit added. “The ability to manage personal finance matters in an efficient manner is not only a wise investment of time but one we hope will lead to smart personal decisions in the future.”
