Triton students schooled in making ends meet

April 24, 2014

BOURBON — “I don’t have any money left to spend!” said one seventh-grader as he ruefully examined his checkbook register upon finishing his tour of Triton Jr./Sr. High School’s Reality Store. He had been randomly assigned a fictitious occupation which, to his dismay, did not pay enough to cover basic household expenses.
This lesson in life was presented last Wednesday to all seventh and eighth-graders by employees of the main headquarters of Lake City Bank in Warsaw. The bank offers this look at the reality of life to all area junior high classes.
