RALEIGH – High school educators from across North Carolina will gather at Campbell University’s Lundy-Fetterman School of Business Raleigh Campus on July 25-29 for a workshop to help prepare them to better teach their students in areas of financial literacy. The workshop, which arose from Campbell University’s partnership with the North Carolina Council on Economic Education, equips teachers to meet state mandates requiring high school students to earn a passing grade in financial literacy before graduation.

North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall ‘81, the first woman ever elected to a statewide executive branch office in the Old North State, will visit the class on Wednesday morning, according to Campbell Professor Dr. Shahriar Mostashari.  

Educators who attend the workshop can expect both a brief refresher course as well as new training on government and economic systems, the cost and benefits of trade, building wealth and preparing students for high-demand jobs in finance. Upon completion, participants will earn a professional development certificate and be provided with access to digital resources and lesson plans, Mostashari said. 

The workshop will be held in Campbell Law School’s Room 105, which is part of the Raleigh Campus at 225 Hillsborough St.
