Stockman Bank to teach students credit

   Stockman Bank will be teaching students on how to use credit wisely on Oct. 21 at Conrad High School as part of National Get Smart About Credit month.
   Joan Jensen, real estate and consumer loan officer at Stockman Bank, will help educate 11th and 12th grade students in Janie McFarland’s business math class on the do’s and don’ts of credit.
   The main focus of the presentation will be on obtaining and managing credit, understanding the importance of a good credit record, budgeting now to help avoid credit problems later and keeping personal financial information secure.
   “The choices our youth make with their first credit card will impact their lives years later when they apply for a car loan or even a mortgage,” says Dan Majerus, president of Stockman Bank Conrad.
   He went on to add, “We are participating in this program to raise awareness about the responsible use of credit. And, to show our youth how they can use credit wisely right from the start.”
   Stockman Bank is proud to participate in Get Smart About Credit month and help educate students on the importance of having good credit now, so they can make smart financial choices later in life, Jensen added.
