As a part of Money Smart Week, Northwest Mississippi Community College’s Division of Learning Resources will present “Give Yourself Some Credit” on Wednesday, April 26 at 2 p.m. in the R.C. Pugh Library Viewing Room.
Pam Hawks, director of Training and Deposit Operations at Sycamore Bank, will speak to students about the importance of saving money and basic financial tips. The program is open to all students, faculty and staff, and the community. Light refreshments and giveaways are available.
“We all know that most college students do not have a lot of extra money. That is why it is even more important to save what you can so that you will not have to rely entirely on high-interest credit cards for emergencies,” said Maya Berry, digital librarian.
Money Smart Week is a national public awareness campaign coordinated by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago to help individuals and families better manage their personal finances. Banks, businesses, schools, libraries and many others are joining together to help support financial education during Money Smart Week – April 22-29. All presentations are free, educational and involve no sales pitches.
