On Friday, Nov. 4, Selette returned to campus to speak about her Financial Fitness program, The Power of Budgeting, with students in the STRIDE (Success Team for Readiness, Improvement, Diversity, and Excellence) program. The Power of Budgeting is a 60-minute interactive seminar that introduces participants to the importance of creating and maintaining a budget. STRIDE students had the opportunity to set their own goals for spending, saving, and repayment. Students also learned the basics of credit scoring.
