WEST POINT, Miss. (WCBI)- Financial literacy was the goal of a workshop in West Point Saturday morning.
The Clay County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority sponsored the event.
Wilma Peterson from Mississippi State University’s Institute for Market Studies was the featured speaker.
Topics included how to write a check, creating a budget, and improving your credit score.
Member Jeanice Andrews said the new year is a time when most people plan to take charge of their personal finances, so it was the perfect time for Saturday’s workshop.
“I’m hoping that everybody be aware of their personal finances. Where you are, you may be a little sad not having any money to where you want to accomplish and you know everybody needs to be aware of creating a budget if nothing else from this workshop is creating a budget what they have coming in and what they have going out,” said Andrews.
The Clay County Alumnae Chapters host monthly workshops on a variety of topics from September to February.
