Doug Fuller, president of Quail Creek Bank said, “We are extremely excited about being the exclusive sponsor for the Oklahoma City area. It is a perfect fit with our mission to be a leader in banking technology and providing financial services and education to the next generation of Oklahomans. Today’s young adults access their banking needs much differently than their parents or grandparents. As a strong supporter of our community we want to help them make good and informed decisions for their financial future.”
Dave Ramsey's course, Foundations in Personal Finance, allows high school educators to teach their students about the importance of their financial future. Through a DVD lecture course, accompanying workbook, and online content, students are taught the value of saving and spending to guide them down the path of financial peace. Educators can enjoy the easy-to-use, turn-key resource that provides them with lesson plans, tests, activities, and other supplemental material. They don't have to worry about lesson planning--Dave has done all of that for them!
Ramsey developed Foundations in Personal Finance to teach students sound financial principles so they can avoid financial difficulties as they become adults. The lessons are taught in an entertaining, passionate, and easy-to-understand style to help students learn the financial lessons their parents have learned the hard way. Each interactive lesson is taught by Ramsey through age-specific questions. The curriculum is aligned with Oklahoma’s state standards with an emphasis on 21st Century Learning Skills like critical thinking, analyzing information, problem solving, and applying knowledge to new situations.
The Bank's sponsorship is enabling teachers to reach many students who are able to gain the valuable lessons from Dave's course at no charge to the school or to the students themselves.
In addition to our financial commitment of covering the cost of the Foundations in Personal Finance curriculum written by author and financial education expert Dave Ramsey, Quail Creek Bank sends a liaison to each classroom each semester to act as a guest speaker, and to help reinforce financial topics of the teacher's choosing. This year, we have a proud team of 10 bank employees who help coordinate between the bank and the school, as well as teach lessons when needed.
