$500 Emergency Fund
Posted On:
Thursday, December 20, 2018

Congratulations to 16 students from Mr. Terry Harnden's Personal Finance classes. These students established a $500 emergency fund in ten weeks. The challenge was issued to students while studying the Dave Ramsey "Foundations in Personal Finance" material that explains five foundations for establishing and maintaining financial peace.

All Personal Finance students were given a sheet with ten ideas on how to save the money quickly. The students had to open a new savings account and could not transfer any funds from other sources. Students were given the challenge on September 25th with a target date of November 30th. 

A total of 54 students saved for their emergency fund. Students who successfully completed the challenge and saved $500 include Bree Williamson, Alexis Hershman, Sara Dove, George Gannon, Bryson Goines, Slade Barnes, Destinee Lain, Kara Reed Thompson, Dyllen Robinson, Jada Buckingham, Isaac Walz, Mary Spradley, Ann Petty, Koby Howard, Zachary Banks, and Dalton McGinnis
