Lisa Hess, an accountant at Mifflinburg Bank & Trust, recently visited the Mifflinburg Intermediate School to teach lessons on budgeting, credit card use, writing checks and saving money to the 3rd grade class.

She visits local schools annually to help teach kids valuable lessons on saving and money management. “I feel it’s important to plant the seed of financial knowledge at an early age and hope that it will start a conversation within their family,” Hess said. Along with Hess’s school visits, Mifflinburg Bank & Trust traditionally hosted bank tours for the Mifflinburg Intermediate School’s 3rd graders each year. The bank hopes to continue with the tours come 2022 after the pandemic postponed the event in 2020 and 2021.
