The ability to make critical financial decisions, manage money, and use credit effectively are lessons we owe to our youth.
Brookfield, Wisconsin (PRWEB) February 19, 2013
Inlanta Mortgage is delighted to announce it is partnering with Make a Difference - Wisconsin and other local organizations to provide personal finance training to Waukesha area high school students at the Seventh Annual Financial Fitness 101 Event.
Financial Fitness 101 Event organizers are expecting 350 students to participate in this one-day event on March 15 at Waukesha County Technical College. The event is an exciting way for students to learn about personal accounting, financial responsibility, and life choices while interacting with volunteer business professionals in the Waukesha area. Inlanta Mortgage loan officers will help students understand the mortgage process and responsibilities. Other stations students will rotate through include car dealers, credit card services, and day care providers.
“The ability to make critical financial decisions, manage money, and use credit effectively are lessons we owe to our youth,” said Inlanta Mortgage CFO, John L. Watry. “We are proud to be a part Financial Fitness 101. It is all of our responsibility as parents, educators, and a community to make sure our young people begin their adult lives with the financial literacy necessary for them to succeed.”
At this year's Financial Fitness 101 Event, Inlanta Mortgage President Nicholas DelTorto and Loan Officers Tia MacNerland, Michele Fritz, Patty Napgezek and Harold Bloch will be helping the students understand their home financing options.
Inlanta Mortgage loan officers Kris Steinbach and Patricia Napgezek recently participated in the Reality Store Program at Oconomowoc High School. The Reality Store Program is similar to Financial Fitness 101 in that it also walks students through decisions that will affect their personal finances. At the Reality Store, Steinbach and Napgezek calculated each student’s debt-to-income ratios and helped them determine if they had enough money left after college loans and auto payments to purchase a home. The overall simulation was very realistic.
