It was a “real world” kind of day as Ashley Johnson’s classes got first-hand financial know-how from Steven Smith, The Cecilian Bank, and Kindra Ewing-Jones, UK Extension Service. Great Q&A session, too. 8th graders will put that knowledge to the test next week as they map out a month-long budget, for a taste of adult life and the financial decisions that go with it.
