PNC Foundation awards grant for SPROUTS University!
KCEE is pleased to announce that a grant of $75,000 has been awarded by the PNC Foundation for SPROUTS University!
SPROUTS University will capitalize on the previous PNC investment of SPROUTS: Preschool Economics Through Dramatic Play curriculum/guides. Building on the popular SPROUTS curriculum, KCEE in collaboration with Bellarmine University will design a unique training program using university students as instructors. The students will present at Head Start facilities, day care centers, and for families using SPROUTS to teach financial literacy concepts through dialogic reading and play. Through this partnership with PNC Foundation preschool agencies will receive training, teacher guides and children's literature books to teach pre-school children basic financial concepts.

Congratulations to our 2014 Outstanding Economic Educator of the Year
Stephen Hall, (Coach Hall as he is known to students and colleagues), is a Business Education teacher at Daviess County High School in Owensboro. Stephen "Barney" Hall incorporates economic and financial literacy education into every aspect of the business classes he teaches, as he believes that a background in economics is needed in order to understand how the world works. He has used the Stock Market Game program for several years, competiting against his own students, and making the program an exciting education experience for his students. Stephen received a plaque and check for $1,000 at a presentation at the Daviess County Board of Education on September 18.
