Conference offers teachers financial literacy education
MISSISSIPPI STATE -- Mississippi teachers can learn valuable financial skills to pass along to their students during the Personal Financial Literacy Teacher Conference July 9-11 at Mississippi State University.
Continuing education units are also available for teachers who qualify. The additional cost for 1.2 CEUs is $20.
The early-bird registration fee of $40 ends June 30, so participants are encouraged to register immediately by calling their local Extension office.
"We want all districts to be well represented, and we want our teachers to have these great resources," said Grenell Rogers, MSU Extension family resource management agent.
Volunteers and individuals who can benefit from financial literacy education are also encouraged to attend the conference, which takes place in Bost Extension Building on the main MSU campus. Teachers of all grade levels may participate.
The conference is sponsored by Mississippi Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy, MSU's Extension Service, the Mississippi Department of Education, the Mississippi Secretary of State's Office, Allstate Foundation, Bancorp South, Credit Unions of Mississippi and AmSouth Bank.
