The students were intently focused on the topic and asked a lot of good questions. A few of them have stopped by to tell me how much learned.
The quality of Dick’s presentation was evident by the level of thoughful and often challenging questions asked by the students throughout both sessions.

You are making a difference! My students have been speaking to me since your visit about how they have changed their behavior and now allocate less money towards discretionary expenses. I even had several students mention saving for retirement! Keep up the good work!!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the extraordinary job you did to continue the relationship we began several years to develop and implement the “practical” economics program. Your work these past two years with Neal Shultz as been exemplary. I know how dedicated you have been to the project and it’s refinement over the past several years. It certainly has enhanced our economics instruction and has made a lasting impact on many of our Seniors. I would also like to acknowledge your My Money Workshop Volunteer Instructor, Ms. Vicki Gold for her help throughout the year. So, again I offer my gratitude to you for the taking time to work with us and I hope that you will want to continue the program next year.
Again, my sincere appreciation for all you have done on behalf of the students of New Rochelle High School!

Thank you all very much for taking time this weekend to help with the Upward Bound Workshops. Not only did you give up your precious Saturday morning, but you also ran phenomenal workshops that taught the kids a lot of extremely useful information. All morning today I have been asking the kids what they thought of the Workshops, and every student I have seen has said that he or she learned something he/she didn’t know before and something that will be useful in managing his/her finances in the future. Specifically, most enjoyed the budget worksheet (especially the Starbucks reference!) and learning about credit scores.

Thank you so much for sharing your wealth of information with the students at Concordia College. I really enjoyed your presentation and wish I had the advantage of attending such a program when I was in college.
I look forward to coordinating future programs.

Thank you for putting together another wonderful, educational experience that our interns truly enjoyed. They learned so much about money management and financial success that I’m sure they will use their paychecks wisely from now on.
Thanks again for making a difference in the lives of our students!

In My Money Workshop I am learning how to manage my money and save. I am also learning new ways to use a credit card and how to keep a good credit score. This is helpful because it will help me in the future.
