Handling your money is a skill that many need to improve upon, and eight area banks have joined forces with Lewis and Clark Community College to bring financial education to L&C students during Spring Semester 2014.  A series of sessions are being offered at the college and the banks are offering this educational opportunity at no charge.  One course just wrapped up, and another is being planned for either late March or early April.

L&C Associate Director of Veterans Services Terry Lane says this provides a great service to the community.
