Educators receive financial literacy scholarships

Two Wisconsin public school teachers received a scholarship from Member Benefits to attend the National Institute of Financial and Economic Literacy’s (NIFEL) Annual Summer Institute on financial education. The Institute is designed to provide teachers with new and innovative ways to teach students about managing paychecks, saving and investing, purchasing insurance, and understanding credit. Both recipients found NIFEL to be a great opportunity to enhance their skills and inspire their students to take charge of their personal finances.
