A Banker In Every Classroom

A Banker in Every Classroom


 

More than 600 classroom presentations took place across Mississippi during the sixth annual “A Banker in Every Classroom” financial literacy project sponsored by the Mississippi Bankers Association.

“A Banker in Every Classroom” reached over 14,000 Mississippi students in grades K through 12 with lessons in personal finance during the week of October 31-November 4.  Governor Phil Bryant declared this week to be “A Banker in Every Classroom” week in Mississippi.

Each presentation represented a partnership between a local teacher and a local banker.  “This project brings together teachers and bankers, who share a special interest in mentoring young people in their community,” said Mac Deaver, president of the Mississippi Bankers Association.  “The project is making a difference by helping students understand financial matters – which is so important to personal growth and success.”

“The teacher-banker collaboration creates more innovative and meaningful classroom presentations,” Deaver said.  “And these relationships have helped the project reach more students each year.”  In its first five years, “A Banker in Every Classroom” reached over 55,000 Mississippi students.

 Lessons cover a wide range of topics including savings, credit, budgeting and many others.
