WEOKIE Okla. Lt. Gov. to unveil pilot fin ed program
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (10/13/11)--The WEOKIE Foundation in Oklahoma City and TTCU The Credit Union in Tulsa, Okla., are unveiling a pilot high school financial education curriculum project. In 2006, WEOKIE CU formed the WEOKIE Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) public charity that provides a formal avenue of charitable giving for the credit union and offers financial education and scholarship opportunities to Oklahoma City and the surrounding communities. Today at a press conference hosted by Oklahoma Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb, the curriculum will be demonstrated to the press at Yukon (Okla.) High School. “Oklahoma becomes the first state in the nation to offer this high-tech and turnkey curriculum for free to all teachers in the state,” Lamb said. “We’re leading the nation in this initiative, thanks to the tremendous effort of WEOKIE and TTCU, who have underwritten the entire “FoolProof Oklahoma’ project. All of our children will benefit from this project.”
