Event Recap : The 2013 Visionary Awards by CEE at The Pierre Hotel

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

We had the pleasure to attend an Amazing event on October 22nd - The 2013 Visionary Awards by CEE at The Pierre Hotel 

Please Check out this Wonderful Organization - www.councilforeconed.org

The Council for Economic Education (CEE) is the leading organization in the United States that focuses on the economic and financial education of students from kindergarten through high school. For nearly 65 years, our mission has been to instill in young people the fourth “R”—a real-world understanding of economics and personal finance. It is only by acquiring economic and financial literacy that children can learn that there are better options for a life well lived, will be able to see opportunity on their horizon line and, ultimately, can grow into successful and productive adults capable of making informed and responsible decisions.

The Visionary Awards honors leaders who promote economic and financial literacy to create a better-informed society.
