Thanks to our Bank on Memphis Partners at First South Financial Credit Union at the Tiger Banking Center and the University of Memphis CAAS/Life Skills for hosting the On My Own Financial Education workshop! We enjoyed working with student-athletes from the Women's Volleyball team on financial literacy skills. Students were asked to imagine they were 26 years old with a simulated occupation and family scenario and worked through a months worth of expenses at 11 expense stations. Students learned the value of creating spending plans, tracking their spending and saving money in an emergency fund to be ready for those pesky "curve balls".
