Western Wayne Business Students Complete Financial Literary Course

Working in sports management, owning a business related to a trade, and going into the field of fashion marketing are just some of the career paths that interest students in Mrs. Theresa Lubash’s Introduction to Business classes at Western Wayne High School.  In order to help give her students an edge in today’s competitive atmosphere, Lubash had her two Introduction to Business classes complete an online Financial Literacy course provided by EverFi.

EverFi, Inc. is an educational technology company focused on teaching, assessing, and certifying K-12 and college students in critical skills they need for life.  The company teams with local institutions like Western Wayne to provide their programs at no cost to schools.  Honesdale National Bank locally sponsors EverFi.

Through this computer-based program, called the Pennsylvania Financial Scholars Program, students progressed in nine modules.  They had a pretest and posttest of ten questions for each module.  The topics included:  savings, banking, payment types, credit scores, higher education, renting vs. owning, insurance and taxes, consumer protection, and investing.
