A team of students in the Institute for Leadership Advancement in the College of Business Administration will host Finance Day at UA — a financial literacy summit, on Wednesday, May 3, for about 200 freshmen from North High School in Akron.
The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., in E.J. Thomas Performing Arts Hall. Some sessions will be held in other buildings as well. The student team planned all aspects of the day as a Leadership Experience Project.
Financial professionals from Huntington Bank, SS&G Wealth Management, The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, Tri-C, Bob Gillingham Ford and FinMango will be teaching sessions on budgeting, investing and financial decision making.
"We created Finance Day at UA to teach high school students about financial literacy in hopes of giving them the knowledge and resources they need to make good financial decisions for their future," says Shelby Amatangelo, president of Beta Alpha Psi, Gamma Eta Chapter, and co-founder of Finance Day at UA. “We will teach them how to save and invest their money now, allowing them to build greater financial stability for their future.”
