This group partnered with Walker High School to place the Dave Ramsey’s Foundations in Personal Finance class as an elective for the Spring 2018 block. Through the help of the Livingston Parish School Board they were able to obtain a grant to pay for the class that taught 18 students who were randomly selected. The group worked the elective day at Walker High School for the 2018-2019 school year passing out flyers and talking to parents and students about the financial class. Because of our efforts 88 students signed up for the class in the fall. The Dave Ramsey elective will be offered to many parish students in other high schools for 2018-2019 school year and the group will continue to encourage parish students to set a path to win with money.
