Teach Children to Save Day
In honor of National Teach Children to Save Day, Justin Gates, of Security Bank, spoke to fifth graders at Cassville Intermediate School, Exeter Elementary School and Wheaton Elementary School on April 23 and 24. Gates' presentation included information on saving for short- and long-term goals, how to establish a savings account and the importance of financial education. Gates speaks to around 200 students each year and has addressed several thousand students since Security Bank began the program around eight years ago. Jon Horner, Security Bank president, also visited area schools on National Teach Children to Save Day.
