State Treasurer Dillon, Lions Pettigrew to Visit Local School
State Treasurer Andy Dillon and Detroit Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew will visit the International Academy in Flint on Tuesday to help roll out an educational video game and classroom curriculum called Financial Football.
Financial Football is meant to help students and adults tackle their financial futures. The game incorporates lessons taught through Practical Money Skills for Life, a free, award winning money management program.
The game and curriculum is now being distributed to every private and charter middle and high school in the state by Treasurer Dillon’s office. It has already been provided to every public middle and high school in the state.
