PRESS RELEASE: Miami Dolphins safety Michael Thomas partners with SunTrust to kick off financial education at Norland Senior High School
Miami Dolphins safety Michael Thomas on Friday, April 22, teamed with SunTrust Bank’s South Florida President & CEO Margaret Callihan to teach 11th and 12th grade students at Norland Senior High School about the importance of making good financial decisions.
As part of Financial Literacy month, Callihan and Thomas lead the students through three topical discussions: setting financial goals, renting vs. buying and the pros and cons of homeownership. The one-hour exercise concluded with a game to challenge the students and a raffle for a Michael Thomas autographed Miami Dolphins helmet.
“Having Michael Thomas and SunTrust visit today really made an impact on the students and the way they learn and view finance,” Miami Norland High School Principal Reginald E. Lee said. “The Dolphins and SunTrust have and continue to be great community partners in our school, and we’re always delighted to have them around the students shaping their future.”
The event took place in April in celebration of Financial Literacy Month to teach Americans how to establish and maintain healthy financial habits. Early education about how to properly manage finances can lead to stability and confidence and reduce overall financial stresses.
