by Shelli King, Director of Communications
Nashville, TN – This week the Tennessee Financial Literacy Commission honored three Tennessee educators for taking the lead in bringing financial education tools to their students. Kara Campbell, Cody Hawks, and Candiace Dandridge were each presented with the Tennessee Financial Literacy Commission Leadership Award by Treasurer David H. Lillard, Jr. at an event on Tuesday evening. Chris Holmes, a longtime TNFLC board member, was also honored with the Champion of Financial Literacy Award for his work in driving the success of the Commission’s programs since inception.
“Educators play many roles and take on many responsibilities –these individuals and their schools are going above and beyond,” said Treasurer Lillard. “And they do so because they know that these lessons have real life application, and they are dedicated to the whole well-being of their students, and their futures. We were pleased to honor these three educators for their commitment to financial literacy in their schools.”
