Chelsea Groton Bank presented its sixth annual money madness seminar to over 175 high school students on Thursday, March 22 at Connecticut College. Mitchell College President Mary Ellen Jukoski opened the event with a motivational speech encouraging students to invest in their futures; both financially and educationally.
The daylong seminar featured break-out sessions by community representatives from SERAC, William W. Backus Hospital, the FDIC, and Valenti Auto Dealers, who spoke about the costs of smoking, eating healthfully on a budget, keys to maintaining good credit, and tips on buying a vehicle, respectively.
Pam Days-Luketich, Community Education Officer, said, “The Bank was pleased to host this annual event for students from ten area high schools.” Luketich went on to say that Chelsea Groton Bank employees consistently invest their time and expertise in the communities they serve to improve the quality of life for all.
