From Principal Fisher: "I am pleased to let you know that through members of our Alumnae/i Association, we are able to offer Hunter students access to the Financial Backpack Program, a day of financial literacy run by the Financial Women’s Association through a grant from HSBC. The Financial Backpack outreach program teaches personal financial management skills to high school students. If enough students sign up, the program will run at HCHS on Saturday, April 28th, from 9 AM to 4 PM. Students who participate will receive lunch as well as a $50 Amazon gift card at the end of the day. If you are interested in participating, please send your name and student ID number to Rose Fogarty, Assistant to the Principal, at rfogarty@hccs.hunter.cuny.edu by Friday, 3/16 (sooner is better if you are interested!).
