A lucky group of Pittsburgh area students from Allderdice High School got the chance to meet local luminaries from sports and politics–and get a head start on learning money management skills that will stick with them for life.
As part of Visa’s “Financial Football” program, Pittsburgh Steeler wide receiver Mike Wallace and Pennsylvania State Treasurer Rob McCord dropped by to share their personal experiences on the importance of money management with students.
The centerpiece of Visa’s nationwide educational initiative with the NFL and NFL PLAYERS, Financial Football helps students and adults tackle their financial futures. This free game is accompanied by a classroom curriculum and is available to every public middle and high school in the state of Pennsylvania.
So we know who the students in Pittsburgh will be rooting for this weekend. Who is YOUR favorite football team? Tell us who you will be rooting for in the comments!
