Managing your money wisely is one of the most important part of every hard-working adult's life.

So why not get high school students started on learning how to finance a home, a car, and everyday expenses?

Mansfield Senior High School has started an on-life financial literacy program for students taking economics classes.

The program is provided by EverFi, and paid for by Richland Bank, whose president says banks want to say "yes" to loan and credit card applicants, but often have to say "no" to applicants who manage their money poorly and have bad credit.

About fifty students are taking the course in the first semester, and teachers and students have good things to say about it.

Richland Bank plans to continue supporting the program, which costs several thousand dollars a year, at Mansfield Senior High if students keep taking it.

Bank president John Brown also hopes to expand it to other schools.
