“Partnerships matter!” said Principal Monica Woods as Junior Achievement and Frost Bank volunteers returned to Oak Springs Elementary on April 23 and 25th for two days of financial education during Financial Literacy Month.
“JA in a Day is a great way for our bankers to get back into the community.”
-Betty Davis, Frost Bank Vice President of Community Development.
Following training by Junior Achievement staff, Frost Bank employees from Commercial Lending, Corporate Banking and Relationship Managers spent the day in an elementary school classroom. “I love teaching the fourth grade curriculum JA Our Region,” said Tyler Jones, Frost Bank Assistant Vice President, Relationship Manager. “I teach some fundamental tasks of business ownership through a fun game called Hot Dog Stand Game. The kids get so excited, they don’t realize they are tracking revenue and expenses!”
Frost Bank has been a financial sponsor of Junior Achievement for many years and chooses to return to Oak Springs Elementary in Austin ISD every year. This year we had 11 volunteers teaching 11 classes with 187 students.
