| May 26, 2014

COSHOCTON – Junior Achievement USA is committed to developing and implementing vital and innovative programs to help students understand the importance of planning for their financial future.

Junior Achievement USA is a nonprofit organization financed by businesses, foundations, government, and individuals. Recently Mr. Bob Bigrigg, President of Ohio Heritage, volunteered his time to teach Personal Finance with the students from River View High School utilizing Junior Achievement resources to instruct. Mrs. Moran’s Personal Finance classes allowed Mr. Bigrigg to present topics about Plan to Earn, Saving for Life, The Budget Game, Credit Choices, and Savvy Consumer. He met with the students once a week for five weeks. The experience was very enriching for the students to integrate and learn the financial issues faced by teens and young adults in today’s world.
