Louisiana Scholarship Recipient Attends the Jump$tart National Educator Conference in Dallas, Texas
The Louisiana Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy awarded a full scholarship for attendance at the Jump$tart National Educator Conference held November 5-7 in Dallas, Texas. The Louisiana educator recipient was Demetrious Belser, a business and math teacher at Westgate High School in Iberia Parish. The conference offered classroom educators an opportunity to see, learn about, and try educational resources that can be integrated immediately into current lesson plans; to attend informative workshops under two different strands—curriculum/content and personal growth; to meet with leaders from finance and education; and to network with colleagues from across the country.We celebrate you Demetrious for all you do to advance financial education for students in our state.
