In Winter 2020, planning and preparations were well underway for the 12th Annual Credit for Life Fair. Little did we know that with the closing of Quincy Public Schools in March, the in-person event would not be held. However, thanks to the dedication and commitment of our innovative business educators, the QPS 2020 Credit for Life Fair: A Digital Experience was designed and developed. It provided high school seniors with an understanding of decisions impacting their spending and developed skills to be financially wise, and underscored the importance of good credit, budgeting, and money management. The program was recognized by the State Treasurer’s Office and shared with school districts throughout the state.
Building on the success of last year’s event, 450 seniors from Quincy Public Schools business electives and career vocational & technical programs will participate virtually in the 13th annual Credit for Life Fair in April 2021 (Financial Literacy Month).
Special thanks to the following partners for their support in making this year’s Credit for Life Fair a fun-filled and rewarding experience: Mass Bay Credit Union, Baystate Financial, Mike Rothberg, Colonial Federal Savings Bank, South Shore Bank, Quincy Credit Union, Quincy College, Quirk Auto Dealerships and Coastal Heritage Bank.
