Financial Literacy Fan Mail

Look what our partners near Springfield just received in the mail!

The Hampden and Hampshire County Bar Associations shared a few thank you notes they received from students who participated in the M. Ellen Carpenter Financial Literacy Program this fall. Under the leadership of Financial Literacy Co-Chairs Elizabeth Katz (Rescia & Katz, LLP) and John Davis (Cooley Shrair) and Judge Henry Boroff, volunteers teach roughly 100 students at Holyoke, Easthampton, and Northampton High Schools how to make sound financial decisions through the program every year.
