Lillie News: Al Franken: Sen. Al Franken visits Tartan, praises STEM
“Are you rich now? Are you up to some kind of pyramid scheme?” U.S. Sen. Al Franken asked the two girls at Tartan High School’s student-run credit union branch.
Seniors Hannah Lee and Barkot Berhanu took the former comedian’s quips in stride, staying on message with their explanation of how the credit union is part of a schoolwide focus on financial literacy. Lee listed budgeting, building credit and how to apply for loans as part of the students’ lesson plan.
