Financial Advisor Shares Wealth of Knowledge with Personal Finance Classes

Edward Jones financial advisor, Jay Peterson, was a featured speaker in the Personal Finance classes this week.  Peterson shared his wealth of knowledge about investing and gave advice about choosing stock.  This helped prepare the students for their upcoming Stock Market simulation in which students will select stock to purchase and monitor their investments over the next 7 weeks.  He also shared the importance of learning about personal finance while in high school with the juniors and seniors in the class.  Peterson advised the students that regardless of their future career, they will be using the information learned in Personal Finance class.  Students especially enjoyed how Peterson was able to relate the investing concepts to their own lives.  Senior Brooke Eisenhauer stated, “It helped to have Mr. Peterson give examples of real money situations people might go through during their lifetime.”
