Students in the EverFi Personal Finance class at Mansfield Senior High School had a special visitor Monday morning. Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel stopped-in for about twenty minutes to tell the students the financial literacy class is a requirement for all high schools under a state law passed in 2007. Mansfield Senior's Personal Finance class is fully funded by Richland Bank, which hopes to eventually do the same for other area high schools. Marketing Manager Kristie Massa was pleased with the student's comments about the class, including one who said "it teaches you not to waste your money". The financial literacy program is a semester class, meaning a group of students take it for half a year, then another group takes it.
