The following is a press release sent by Sen. Harry Reid’s office following his personal meeting in Washington with Club member Megan Wurm!
Washington, D.C. – Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) met with Megan Wurm, a Bishop Manogue High School student from Sparks, who has been named national Money Matters ambassador for the Boys & Girls club of America. As ambassador, Megan will promote the Boys & Girls Club’s “Money Matters: Make it Count” program, which helps teens learn about personal finance. Megan is a member of Truckee Meadows Club and learned budgeting skills and smart saving habits from money matters.
“I congratulate Megan on her selection as Money Matters Ambassador and thank the Boys & Girls Clubs of America for the tremendous work they do in our communities,” said Reid. “And I’m proud that Megan will be representing Nevada in educating her peers across the country about how to manage their money and afford college.”
“Before Money Matters I had never really thought about handling my finances on my own,” said Megan. “But thanks to the class I am much more confident about handling my money. I now have no problem handling a monthly budget and I have set a goal to graduate from college debt-free. In fact, once I started having success budgeting my money, my whole family decided to stick to a strict budget.”
