Financial Literacy 101 in Missouri

Denise Day, president of Day Knight & Associates in Ballwin, Mo., recently spent the day leading a financial literacy and responsibility program with approximately 175 students at Marquette High School in Chesterfield, Mo., as part of Rockwood School District Partners in Education Program.

The presentation covers issues such as responsible use of credit and making sound financial decisions.

Members of the Missouri Collectors Association regularly present this financial literacy curriculum at Marquette High School, especially over the last several years.

Debra Ciskey, IFCCE, chief compliance officer at Wakefield & Associates Inc., assisted Day with an updated PowerPoint presentation available to ACA members interested in participating in similar financial literacy outreach programs.
