Dignitaries, others visit Tuesday to kick off Money Smart Week

Money Smart Week Wisconsin, the fourth annual statewide financial literacy campaign, kicks off at UW-Green Bay on Tuesday (Oct. 13). The University’s Students in Free Enterprise chapter is again hosting the kickoff event, scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Phoenix Room of the University Union. The honorary chairperson this year is state Sen. Dave Hansen. Two scholarships will awarded to local “Money Smart Kids,” and brief remarks will be made by the chair of the Governor’s Council of Financial Literacy, Dave Mancl, by Nancy Schopf of the Green Bay Chamber of Commerce and by Bobbie Lison of Catholic Charities. Also part of Tuesday’s program will be an hour-long presentation on “The M Word: An Honest Conversation about Money.” It’s being billed as a “don’t-miss” event, according to SIFE adviser Prof. John Stoll.
