Catch up to us – that was the challenge Patricia Gainey, principal at East Forsyth High School, tossed out to schools across the state Tuesday afternoon.
Gainey was congratulating more than 200 East Forsyth students who recently completed an online financial literacy course as part of a pilot program. The school was one of 54 across North Carolina who were invited to make use of the BB&T Financial Foundations Scholar Program this year. Beginning in the fall, the program will be made available to more than 450 North Carolina high schools. BB&T announced Tuesday that it is are offering the program – free of charge – to all high schools in the state.
