First Bank and Elastec Partner to Provide Dave Ramsey Curriculum to Local High Schools

First Bank and Elastec proudly announce their partnership to provide Dave Ramsey’s Foundations in Personal Finance curriculum to Carmi-White County and Norris City High Schools.

The curriculum will be made available at no-cost to Consumer Economic high school students during the ’15-’16 school year. Students will learn the value of saving, spending, and giving to guide them down the path of financial literacy.

The curriculum’s creator, Dave Ramsey, is America’s trusted voice on money and business. He’s authored five New York Times best-selling books: Financial Peace, More Than Enough, The Total Money Makeover, EntreLeadership and Smart Money Smart Kids. “The Dave Ramsey Show” is heard by more than 8.5 million listeners each week on more than 550 radio stations.

First Bank’s White County Market President, Nikki Roser commented, “So many high school students graduate without the knowledge to handle personal finances. We hope to transform this trend.”

Foundation in Personal Finance High School EditionDonnie Wilson, Elastec CEO, stated, “Looking back, I wish I would have had this type of education when I was in high school. I want to provide this valuable, financial knowledge to our seniors before they head out into the real world.” Linda Henning, Elastec Marketing Director, added, “We care about our children. They are our future and these basic life skills help to ensure the sustainability of our communities that are so dear to us.”
