Manville High School was the site of its first Financial Reality Fair held on November 20 and hosted by Manville Area FCU.  Over one hundred students participated in this interactive life skills training experience that walks students through the process of making true-to-life budget decisions.

Working with a sample of what their monthly income might be when they begin their career, the students selected housing, transportation, food, clothing and other important budget items, with the hope that when all their selections were made, they would have money left to add to savings, pay down debt or spend.  The Fair volunteers assisted the students as they made their budget choices and learned that handling money is not as easy as it looks.
