Broadway Bankers are joining forces with some Lanier High School teachers to boost financial education for students. Among the group visiting Lanier is bank CEO, David Bohne. This student program, mPOWER Financial Scholars, is part of a comprehensive financial education initiative aimed at doing just that, empowering the community and the younger generation when making decisions about their finances.
“We’re excited to team up with our schools and teachers in the ever-important subject of financial education,” said Bohne. “For Broadway Bank, investing in the success of students is a longstanding tradition, and we truly hope that these important financial lessons will help them as they move on to college and careers,” he added.
The online program allows students to work independently through modules tackling courses on saving, credit score, financing higher education and other subjects tailored for high school students. It also includes real-life guided practice simulations, like filling out the FAFSA or 1040-EZ forms and provides students an easy platform to share budgeting and higher education information with their parents. The program aligns with state and national Jump$tart and Common Core standards.
Johnny Vahalik, the San Antonio Independent School District Career and Technical Education Senior Executive Director will join Broadway Bankers in the classrooms.
The mPOWER Financial Education Program underscores Broadway Bank’s commitment to offering valuable information for the community while also meeting their expectations for simplicity and innovation. For more information on the program, visit: https://broadway.bank/mPOWER
