Stockman Bank to teach students about using credit

Stockman Bank will be presenting to the Conrad High School seniors on April 29, to educate them on basic credit and business etiquette as part of National Teach Children to Save Month.

Stockman Bank presenters will be Vanessa Bucklin, Renae Bouma and Joan Jensen and they will be teaching from 1-3 p.m.

Financial literacy has become vitally important.

This presentation will expose all high school seniors to the basics of building good credit, balancing check books, budgeting their money, dressing appropriately for a job interview and work, and understanding basic business etiquette like shaking a person’s hand when being introduced.

“Studies show that kids are not learning the skills they need to make smart financial decisions as adults,” said Dan Majerus, president of Stockman Bank Conrad.

He went on to add, “Communities and schools teach other life skills, such as driving a car, but we do not spend enough time teaching financial skills. Bankers are in the schools today to help fill that gap and prepare future customers for financial success.”

Stockman Bank is proud to participate in National Teach Children to Save and help educate students on the importance of saving for their future.
