On April 20, Colonial High School had a special guest speaker from 8 Cents in a Jar who came and spoke to the hospitality and tourism, entrepreneur and small business, and culinary programs.
8 Cents in a Jar, Inc. is an award-winning 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization serving the Central Florida community to create opportunities for students in marginalized communities to achieve intergenerational mobility through financial education.
CTE students learned firsthand from the Executive Director, Lashea Reaves, the organization’s various programs, and the importance of understanding your finances.
Students were locked in and appreciated the wealth of knowledge she poured into them.
Thanks to Ms. Robinson, Ms. Latimer, and Ms. Romero-Escobar, who put this fantastic school visit together.
