Campbell’s CFLEE has hosted similar events in conjunction with NCCEE. Housed at the Business School, CFLEE helps deliver programs to K-12 schools and educators. The Center’s mission is to promote financial literacy and economic education in greater Harnett County and surrounding regions. Representing seven counties — Robeson, Wake, Cumberland, Harnett, Johnston, Orange and Union — the teachers in attendance also received excellent exposure to Campbell programs and facilities that they will remember when advising students on where to go for higher education.
“We were very excited to be chosen as one of the five sites statewide to host the workshop ‘Follow the Yellow Brick Road to Jobs, Trade and Wealth, Oh My!’ for middle school teachers on our campus,” said liaison and business professor Shariar Mostashari. “This full day workshop provides teachers with a wealth of knowledge in economic and personal finance to share with their students in a classroom.”
