RMHS Banking Students Attend Competition at Federal Reserve Bank
Reading, MA – On Friday, April 8th, Reading Memorial High School students from the Retail Banking course participated in the annual Massachusetts School Banking Association (MSBA) competition at the Federal Reserve Bank in Boston.
The RMHS students competed against 22 other schools in three different areas at the conference: Marketing, Product Development and the Banking Trivia Bowl.
The Reading Cooperative Bank educational office partners with the RMHS Business and Technology Department to offer the Retail Banking course. The course offers students practical experience interacting with the public and processing bank transactions, with emphasis on responsibility, confidentiality, security, accountability, and accuracy. Students also participate in bank-related community service and outreach programs, as well as gain financial literacy.
“Attending the MSBA competition provides a great opportunity for the students to compete against other students from across Massachusetts. The knowledge they gain and the experience they have adds a great deal to the class they are taking,” says Mike Foley, Branch Manager at the RMHS office of Reading Cooperative Bank.
