Personal finance class visits Federal Reserve Bank
Business teacher Neil Jacobyâ€™s third period personal finance class visited the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, Los Angeles Branch Tuesday, April 2.
During the field trip, the class earned second place in a competition against 11 schools. The event, which involved a case study about an individual in debt, prompted teams to examine ways to provide financial aid for the debtor.
â€śIt was really fun to meet a lot of business professionals and present them our ideas and what weâ€™ve learned,â€ť senior Amanda Haight said. â€śIt opened my eyes to how much I enjoy personal finance and helping people get out of debt.â€ť
Students were also introduced to various employees such as Federal Reserve accountants. During a tour of the establishment, officials described each staff memberâ€™s role.
â€śThey were saying it is pretty hard there, and you have to be focused at all times,â€ť junior Nathan Leung said. â€śIt really [showed] who I [could] be business-wise and my capacity for what I can be in the future.â€ť
