We are proud to announce our winners from the Fall 2014 Money Smart Workshops. Each of these ladies won free tuition for the Spring 2015 semester and all they did was attend our Money Smart Seawolves workshops.
Our first winner was Noelle Osei-Tutu.
I was in the financial aid office one afternoon and saw an ad about the Money Smart Seawolves Workshops and a chance of winning the value of in-state tuition so I decided to check it out.I thought my chances of winning were slim to none, but I was both shocked and excited when I got the call that I won. I am extremely appreciative for the opportunity to participate in the informative workshops and for winning the lottery. I learned valuable lessons that I will keep with me now and in the future.
My friend told me about the workshops and I thought I might have been able to learn a few tricks of the trade regarding budgeting.
What I remember most is being told about different websites that aids in both short and long term budgeting, how to effectively and easily start a lifelong savings account, and the differences between choosing debit or credit when shopping.
What I learned from those sessions have already led me to making smarter decisions regarding money and I will continue to use these skills into the future.
