Children learn many subjects and skills in school, but we do not spend enough time teaching them financial skills. This is where BankPacific and other participating banks help to assist our children, our future leaders and workforce to be ready for financial success.
BankPacific President Philip Flores and First Lady Christine Calvo participated in the bank’s presentation to the students of Maria Ulloa Elementary School. “It was really fun being with the students and their teachers. They really like the First Lady participating. She is great with young people” Flores said. “Our goal, like hers, is to help our children become financially savvy now, not later when it could be too late,” said Flores.
Other schools BankPacific visited today were:
* P.C. Lujan Elementary School, Barrigada
* Harry S. Truman Elementary School, Santa Rita
* Agana Heights Elementary School, Agana Heights
