Centreville High School was one of 84 schools in the country to receive a grant to assist with the instruction of personal finance.
Superintendent Stephanie Lemmer said the district’s Curriculum Council and its school board voted in May to make Personal Finance a requirement for all students, starting with the class of 2023.
In recognition of the district’s new requirement, California-based Next Gen Personal Finance awarded Centreville High School $10,000. It was landed thanks to the efforts of instructor Shaun Hulin and principal Chad Brady, Lemmer said.
Next Gen Personal Finance is committed to ensuring all students leave high school with the skills they need to survive in the financial world. This was the first year it has issued grants and Centreville was the only district in the state to receive one.
