Central High School teacher joins Federal Reserve Bank council

Scott Finholm, a teacher at Central High School in Grand Junction, is among the educators selected to serve on an economic education advisory council to the Denver Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.

The council consists of educators and education professionals from Colorado, New Mexico and Wyoming. Members of the advisory council provide expertise and insight in an advisory capacity related to economic education planning, programs and resource development for the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.

“At the Federal Reserve, we strongly believe that our economy is strengthened when more people better understand their own finances as well as how our economy functions,” said Jennifer Clark, district economic education director. “We have staff at each of our four offices in our seven-state Federal Reserve district who work directly with educators providing free resources, research and professional development to help better equip them to teach these concepts to future consumers. The council helps us achieve that goal.”
