HHS Personal Finance
The halls of Huron High School are bustling with the excitement of a new school year, coming back from State Fair break, and straight into homecoming week.  Students and staff are cultivating routines that will set all up for a successful school year.  

As shortages in supplies and workers continue across the country and inflation and interest rates soar, students find relevance with the content they are expected to master in the classroom.  When they walk through the door of Rita Cook’s Personal Finance class, they quickly realize that what they are about to learn will impact nearly every aspect of their lives.

In a time when American’s are struggling financially and that insecurity is being further fueled by political division, students quickly identify the importance of prioritizing their personal savings and including an emergency fund as part of their financial future.
