More than 60 seniors at McConnellsburg High School participated in a Financial Reality Fair on March 30, 2017. The students chose their desired careers and researched entry level salaries to prepare themselves for the interactive budgeting exercise. The day of the fair each student received their budgeting worksheet which they used to make monthly choices for everything from housing to food to clothing. Each student also got to spin the Wheel of Reality where life events either gave them some extra income or dug them deeper into debt. Once they completed their worksheet, they visited with a financial counselor to make sure they were on track with their budget and have a plan in place for their financial future.
