AMARILLO -- The Student Money Management Center at Amarillo College is hosting an Open House from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. today to help the college community with what it has to offer as a champion of financial literacy at AC.
The Student Money Management Center is housed on the first floor of Lynn Library on the Washington Street Campus.
The Center was launched at AC last October as a working component within ACs Career and Employment Center.
It was created on the strength of a $154,000 grant from TG, a Texas public, non-profit corporation that promotes college enrollment and completion, and representatives of TG are expected to attend the Open House.
"The Center was established as a student-success initiative and its role is to help AC students acquire as much information about how to manage their financial resources as possible," said Lisa Bentley, coordinator of the Student Money Management Center.
"Since getting this office off the ground back in October, weve connected with 250 people," she said. "But since we opened in the middle of the previous semester, we decided to have an Open House at the start of this new semester to properly introduce everyone to what the Center has to offer."
