Thank you to everyone who helped make this year’s College Cash 101 event a big success! Eager students and parents arrived at the University of Baltimore on the morning of Saturday, March 31st . We kicked off the day with a welcome from Michael Ward, Associate Dean of Student Affairs at Johns Hopkins University and Kim Clark, Senior Writer at MONEY Magazine. Everyone moved into the break out session of their choice following breakfast and the introduction. Attendees chose from “Finding Money for College,” “The Perks and Perils of Credit,” “Surviving Student Loan Repayment,” and “Building Wealth After College.”
During lunch, Peter Franchot, Maryland State’s Comptroller, spoke to the room about the importance of financial literacy. The day closed with a post-college employment panel featuring Cheri Harman Dorsey (Gordon Feinblatt LLC), Jason Hardebeck (Executive Director of Greater Baltimore Technology Council), Myra Holloway (Human Resources Client Consultant with Carefirst Blue Cross and Blue Shield) and Ashley B. Stewart (Senior Associate in the Talent and Development Unit at the Annie E. Casey Foundation). We were excited about our partnership with MONEY Magazine and thankful for our sponsors this year — Wells Fargo, BB& T, Vitamin, and Baltimore College Town. To see photos from the event, click here.
