Teaching Local Students Financial Literacy
On May 12th, LorMet Community Credit Union leadership presented to over 100 students at Lorain High School on the importance of building credit, budgeting, and financial literacy.
LorMet was contacted by several local educators to facilitate presentations on financial literacy following a bill passed by the state of Ohio in October 2021, requiring financial education to be taught to all high school students.
In January, LorMet hosted high school students from Chamber Leadership Academy for a presentation on financial literacy at their main branch in Amherst. In March, Director of Marketing Andrew Krieger and Assistant Lending Manager Chrissa Yuhas presented to students on-site at Wellington High School.
The Lorain High School presentation in May featured appearances from 1st Vice President Shavena Brown, Lending Manager and Lorain High School Alumni Nilsa Vazquez, and Director of Marketing Andrew Krieger. It was the largest group of students to take part in LorMet’s financial literacy initiative.
LorMet continues to actively promote financial literacy among Lorain County’s future leaders and encourages local educators to inquire regarding future presentations.
