Congressman Cleaver Reads to 3rd Grade Class
Teach Children to Save
by Sarah Cousineau
On April 27th, Central Bank of Kansas City (CBKC) led a Teach Children to Save lesson to a third grade class at Wendell Phillips Elementary. More than 20 local youths explored savings, savings goals, entrepreneurship, trade-offs and banking through reading a book and hands-on activities. What made this presentation extra special is that Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II read the book to the classroom. The Congressman spent about an hour talking and reading to the class, as well as answering questions from the students. Dr. Greene, Superintendent of the KCMO school district, Deloris Brown, Principal of Wendell Phillips, Joyce Neal, 3rd grade teacher, and Bill Dana, President and CEO of Central Bank all joined the class for the lesson taught by Sarah Cousineau, Marketing Director at Central Bank.
