Financial Resources Group had the opportunity to host a field trip last fall at LPL Financial for the Fort Mill High School (FMHS) students who participated in Rock The Street, Wall Street (RTSWS), a financial and investment literacy program designed to spark the interest of high school girls into financial literacy and careers in finance. This classroom program was put into action by women associates at Financial Resources Group who voluntarily taught the curriculum over the course of 5 sessions from September-November.
Enjoy this brief video featuring clips from the field trip where FMHS students had the chance to tour the corporate office of LPL Financial, get perspectives from a panel of leaders in the finance industry, and network. Among the panelists were Maura Cunningham, Founder & CEO of RTSWS who came in from Nashville headquarters to join in the event. She sat down for an interview with Cindy Nagel, CFP®, Director of Business Consulting, who was instrumental in getting our firm to sponsor RTSWS at FMHS.
Below are some of the comments from RTSWS FMHS student participants, thanking Financial Resources Group for sponsoring their chapter, the first cohort in South Carolina!
