When you’re a teen and it comes to learning about money, there’s no better way than to serve on the Family Trust Youth Advisory Board.
“You have to make more money than you spend,” said Scott Fletcher, a Fort Mill High School senior. He’s serving his second term on the board, which tells Family Trust what teens want and need.
“Plus it looks good on your resume,” he adds.
Open to teens ages 15 to 17, the board meets monthly in Rock Hill. Members start with a team-building activity and will learn about money management. This year’s team of 20 also will plan and complete a financial education project. A new board recently was selected.
In addition to Scott, members are:
Garrett Hybarger, Miriam Coburn, Tara Ecklof
Fort Mill High
Ashley Westmoreland, Gepe Womble, Andrew Weaver
Ciera Hope, Elise Watts, Mercedes Cain
Rock Hill High
Genelle Bacote, Colby Williams, Brent Williams
Michael Cranford, Chris Sacco, Tommy Austin
Kimball Prosser, Mary Lyn Wheeler, Shelby Johnson
