Our seniors enjoyed hearing Dale Alexander talk about money today.
Author Dale Alexander, best known for his insightful book "The Talk (about money)” is visiting Shelby County high schools in January to share insights with students eager to learn about financial literacy and responsible money management.
Alexander, a seasoned expert in personal finance, has dedicated his career to empowering individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary for financial success. His latest book, "The Talk (about money)," has gained widespread acclaim for its practical advice and easy-to-understand insights into the world of finance. Alexander is the president of Alexander & Company, which partners with Shelby County Schools to provide supplementary benefits to employees.
The book has been featured in numerous national media outlets and was gifted by the Georgia State Board of Education to all 120,000 graduating seniors in Georgia schools this past year.
Alexander is set to speak to students from Montevallo High, Shelby County High, and Vincent High on January 9 from 9:00 - 10:30 a.m. at the Grande Hall at Shelby County Arts Council. A free community event will also be on January 9 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the same location. Attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the book.
Alexander will travel to Oak Mountain High and Chelsea High on January 10, followed by Calera High and Helena High on January 11.
The speaking engagements will provide students with a unique opportunity to engage directly with Alexander. The author will share anecdotes from his journey, discuss key concepts from his book, and offer valuable tips on budgeting, saving, and making informed financial decisions.
