Oak Grove Middle teaches about the importance of finances

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - This week is National Banker in Every Classroom to help educate kids on the importance of getting a good education, and to educate them on financial literacy.  

Chase Blankenship is a Loan Officer at The First, A National Bank association. He spoke with classrooms at Oak Grove Middle School including his wife's classroom. Together they both discussed the importance of education with the seventh grade students.

“When we start the presentation they kind of don't know what to expect and by the time we finish, we can ask them do you understand what a credit score is… what a banker does. They really do, they understand,” said Blankenship.

Blankenship is hopeful that this will help the students grasp a better financial understanding.
