For the second year in a row, students from Warwick, RI's Toll Gate High School participated in a CU4 Reality Financial Literacy Fair sponsored by Wave and held at the Radisson Hotel Providence Airport. During the Fair, students interacted with Wave representatives and area businesses as consumers with a career and monthly salary. The Fair allowed students to apply the knowledge they gained during the school year on managing their personal finances and budgeting. They experienced firsthand the realities of making ends meet monthly for expenses such as food, clothing, housing, utilities, transportation and other consumer temptations. As a result they gained a better understanding of the importance of making wise financial decisions.


Also at the fair, Warwick, RI Mayor Scott Avidesian presented a proclamation to Wave and Toll Gate High school celebrating Toll Gate High School Financial Literacy Day in Warwick.
