Mike Patton CDJR Teaches Students How to Do Your Banking

According to Capital One's 2009 Survey of High School Seniors, ⅓ of students stated they were either unprepared or unsure how to manage their own personal finances and banking. While students may be exceptional at creating Memes or tweeting, writing a check and balancing a checkbook is clearly a different story.  

As a result, Mike Patton Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM has partnered with Cemark, Inc to sponsor the financial literacy course called How To Do Your Banking. Each school year, we make a significant investment into our youth for a brighter tomorrow.

What Is How to Do Your Banking?

How To Do Your Banking is a financial literacy program that equips teachers with the proper educational tools required to educate today's youth. Mike Patton CDJR has been sponsoring this dynamic course for high school students in LaGrange and Troup County since the 2012 - 2013 school year.

How To Do Your Banking is one of the oldest financial programs in the nation for students. The material was originally published in 1941 by the retired marketing director of First & Merchants National Bank, which would become Bank of America. Today, Cemark, Inc. publishes and distributes all of the literature for How To Do Your Banking.
