Financial Freedom Club Holds Inaugural Meeting

As many students are aware, high school students are rarely offered financial advice, neither in classes nor outside of school.  To fill this void, two Piedmont students, juniors Ashu Lala and Garrett Tomberlin, created the Financial Freedom Club. Lala and Tomberlin wish to “educate students on financial literacy” with their combined knowledge of financial systems. They will teach students the importance of investing and savings starting out as early as high school. They both plan to expand their club and assist students in laying out their financial paths, so they can create and generate wealth as they have. They will be meeting every other Friday after school in Room E3, as well as streaming their meetings on Microsoft Teams. See Social Studies teacher Brian Pitoniak for more information.
