Financial Resources Group Sponsors Financial Literacy Program

Nationally Acclaimed Founder & CEO of Rock the Street, Wall Street Coming to Fort Mill, SC for Field Trip

Fort Mill, SC. – October 18, 2022 – Financial Resources Group Investment Services is pleased to announce the opportunity to sponsor “Rock the Street, Wall Street” (RTSWS) at Fort Mill High School.

Designed to spark the interest of high school girls into financial literacy and careers in finance, RTSWS was founded 11 years ago and now has programs in 33 cities in the US and recently expanded to offer a program in Canada. Fort Mill High School is the first cohort in South Carolina.

Financial Resources Group started the series of 5 classroom sessions at Fort Mill High School in late September and the final classroom session will be held November 1.

As part of the educational experience, the 17 Fort Mill High School students will be going on a field trip at the corporate office of LPL Financial in Fort Mill, South Carolina on Wednesday, October 25, from 9:00 am – 12:30 pm EST.  

Students will have the opportunity to tour the brokerage firm and learn from leaders in the finance industry through a panel interview of finance executives and professionals. Nationally acclaimed RTSWS Founder & CEO Maura Cunningham will be among the panelists and joining students for the tour.

“Rock the Street, Wall Street has been of interest to Fort Mill High School for several years, so we’re pleased and proud to partner with both the school and organization to offer this fantastic classroom curriculum,” said Financial Resources Group’s Cindy Nagel, Director of Business Development.  “These high school girls have opted to stay after school to take part in these sessions because they want to be there – and are curious about the world of finance. My team of fellow volunteering women associates and I have been honored to create an environment where the girls are comfortable asking questions and gaining a better understanding of finance careers by showcasing real-world female role models in money management.”

Cindy, as well as Sims Reeves, Business Education Teacher and school champion who teaches personal finance and business law, were instrumental in advocating for Rock the Street, Wall Street after learning about the organization through its website at, www.rockthestreetwallstreet.com.

RTSWS was founded with the intention of improving these statistics:

  • Millennial women are more than 3x as likely as male peers to not have completely understood financing options when applying to college.
  • Today, women own 2/3 of the total outstanding federal student load debt currently standing at $1.71 TRILLION.
  • Women represent only 6% of the leaders in the financial services professions.
  • 8 out of 10 women have said they have refrained from having financial conversations.
