HIGH POINT, N.C., April 16, 2010 – High Point University business students Jeremy Hiatt, Tyler Heaggans and Matthew Schiffer recently gave a presentation at a local women’s shelter.
In their presentation, given to residents of Leslie’s House, the students discussed financial literacy and delivered information on basic checking and savings accounts, credit and budgeting.
“This was a great experience and I really enjoyed doing it,” says Heaggans. “I felt that I helped individuals to understand their personal finance options.”
