What people are saying...

Patti Leighton, (MVSB Public Relations Director) has joined my 8th grade students during their personal finance classes, for several years. Her engaging and enlightening lessons have provided valuable information in the areas of: the different types of banks and their services and fees; the importance of keeping accurate track of deposits and withdrawals, not only for personal budgeting, but also to prevent fraudulent withdrawals; Identity Theft Protection; the use of debit and credit cards.
