Bryan High School Students Learn About Personal Finances


Nathan Keel, business teacher at the high school, provided a report on the $5,000 grant received from H&R Block.

The 12-week program focused around learning to manage personal finances. The students used a computer program to log into a practice site that included a bank account.

Students learned to pay bills, balance bank statements, and handle many other common financial transactions. The top 22 students in the nation had an opportunity to win a $25,000 scholarship.
