Today, VBMS 7th graders took part in a real life financial simulation. All 7th graders took part in classes all week developed by the OSU Extension Office during Social Studies to learn financial skills. Today, volunteers from the Extension Office, Hancock Federal Credit Union, State Bank, Habitat for Humanity, and Hancock County 4H led our students through the simulation process where they had to get a job, pay taxes, consider additional education, buy food, vehicles, and insurance while determining whether they would have a family. Thank you to these organizations for helping to provide a fantastic experience for our students! #BeABlackKnight
