Our hands-on commitment to teaching financial education.
Throughout the Old National footprint, our associates devote many hours to teaching financial education. As a company, we support and highly encourage their efforts. Here are a few of the ways our associates are working to improve financial knowledge for people of all ages.
A few recent highlights
Indiana National Guard Financial Education
Vincennes University Money Smart Classes
In our Vincennes, Indiana region, Sales Manager Chris Hertel and Retail Center Manager David Stowers volunteer to provide Money Smart classes to students at Vincennes University. Classes are offered three times a semester, for a total of six classes a school year. VU students earn extra credit for taking the classes, which are coordinated through the student services director. The classes are taught in a three-part series:
Part 1: Basics of checking and savings
Part 2: Credit scores and consumer loans
Part 3: Fraud awareness and basic investing
Old National associates also teach Money Smart classes to other community groups and organizations.
Boulware Homeless Shelter Classes
In Owensboro, Kentucky, Affinity Relationship Banker Sam Taylor and Retail Center Manager Jennifer Allen volunteer many hours teaching Real Life Finance classes at the Boulware Homeless Shelter. Classes cover budgeting and basic financial education for homeless individuals, with the goal of preparing them to re-enter the workforce and home life. Sam also teaches financial education classes at the Oasis shelter and Owensboro Regional Recovery.
