The Lincoln Savings Bank (LSB) Foundation has committed $50,000 to the University of Northern Iowa Financial Literacy Program. Financial Skills for Smart Living® is a one-of-a-kind program that allows high school students the opportunity to earn college credit. Students can gain a clear understanding of personal finance fundamentals which coincides with LSB’s core purpose of being an engaged, life-long partner, helping others achieve their financial goals.
“I look forward to working with LSB to offer educational opportunities in personal finance for Iowa high school students,” said Jennifer Anderson, a Business Teaching Program Coordinator. “With their support, we will continue to provide exceptional professional development for teachers in the area of personal finance. More importantly, this partnership will generate new ways for UNI and LSB to provide a high-quality curriculum -with the option to earn college credit- to schools in their community.”
This partnership will cultivate deeper relationships with UNI College of Business, Iowa high school students and educators throughout the state.
"Private funding, including this meaningful partnership with LSB, is incredibly important as we grow our footprint and enhance personal finance education throughout the state of Iowa,” said Ryan Randall, Associate Director of Development with the UNI Foundation. “We are extremely grateful for LSB and their commitment to supporting education.”
