Students Learn Financial Literacy

Financial Literacy Certificate

HAMPTON, IA – Managing finances can be challenging even for some adults, but some local students are getting a head start on understanding their wallets.

Hampton-Dumont students are being awarded for “Financial Literacy.”

They’ve learned about building up a savings, learning the difference between wants and needs, as well as college planning.

Hampton State Bank officials say learning these skills early on is important.

Hampton State Bank Chairman/CEO, Brad Davis said, “To have these skills and to apply them is going to make your relationship with your parents, your siblings, your teachers, future professors and certainly your financial advisor, like your banker, it’s going to make those relationships a lot more harmonious and you’ll be more prosperous.”

Davis and Hampton State Bank has also started a financial literacy program with middle schoolers.
