May 29, 2019
POLAND – Nine Poland high-school students from business teacher Mark Kall’s career and financial management class recently passed a national certification examination demonstrating their financial literacy.
Poland students were administered the Working In Support of Education Financial Literacy Certification Test on May 7. Students who pass become Certified Financially Literate (CFL) indicating that they have met current national standards pertaining to personal finance and have acquired the knowledge and skills to lead a life of financial well-being.
The nine students who successfully passed the examination are seniors Sarah Ahles and Jennifer Sergott; juniors Marianna Hernandez and Jordyn Squire; and sophomores Chelsealynne Anna, Connor Lasher, Bryce Hart, Dale Lepper and Amanda Sweet.
The Working In Support of Education Financial Literacy Program is an educational nonprofit dedicated to improving student’s lives by developing financial literacy for college and the workplace. The goal of the program is to support personal finance instruction in high schools, so students can graduate as financially literate adults.
The Financial Literacy Program was launched in 2003. The examination is currently offered at high schools in 45 states. The program helps students avoid common issues such as dropping out of college due to personal debt or filing personal bankruptcy at a young age.
