Financial literacy for students

May 10, 2009

In support of the American Bankers Association's efforts to promote financial literacy in schools, four employees of Susquehanna Bank made classroom presentations to Greencastle-Antrim Primary School students last month. Sharon Ruppenthal, Barbara Tisony, Cheyann Harshman and Melissa Cummings made 22 half-hour presentations to more than 600 kindergarten, first- and second-grade students as part of the "Teach Children to Save" program. The presentations featured a kite built by Ruppenthal to honor Ben Franklin, for whom Franklin County is named. Her presentation ended with Franklin's coined phrase, "A penny saved is a penny earned."
