CCNB Empowers High School Students to Make Informed Financial Decisions through Innovative Web-Based Program

126 Students Have Received Certification In Financial Literacy Since The Early College High School And Coastal Carolina National Bank Partnership Began in 2011

Coastal Carolina National Bank (CCNB) reported today on the progress of an ongoing initiative to bring financial literacy education to high school students in Horry County, S.C. by providing them with access to the EverFi Financial Literacy Platform. Through the EverFi platform, students can become certified in over 600 topics in financial education, enabling them to become more informed and responsible citizens. CCNB has partnered with the Horry County K-12 Foundation and EverFi, Inc. to bring the interactive financial management program to the students of The Early College High School at no cost to the school.

The school year that began in 2013 was the third year of implementation for the partnership which first began in 2011. The program has been offered to the senior AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) class during the 2nd semester of each school year. To date, there have been 126 students who have received their certification in financial literacy, a valuable mark of distinction on college applications and resumes.

“We think this is an excellent opportunity for students to receive additional instruction in personal financial fitness just before they leave high school to embark off to a college/university and/or the workplace,” said Joan Grimmet, acting principal of The Early College High School when the program began.

Since CCNB opened in 2009, it has been committed to serving the Horry County market and those who live and work there. The bank supports community programs through partnerships such as the one with the Horry County K-12 Foundation and EverFi.

“As a community bank, we’re committed to providing financial guidance to our customers and those in the community,” said Laurence S. Bolchoz, president and chief executive officer of Coastal Carolina National Bank. “One way we do that is by offering a financial program that reaches young adults at a critical time in their lives, just before they enter the workforce or go off to college.”
