The M.P. Baker Library will host Jeremy Kelln, the Panola College campus representative for Herring Bank, at noon, Tuesday, April 11, in the Murphy-Payne Community room. Kelln’s presentation will discuss the importance of budgeting for financial success.
In accordance with the “Money Smart” program designed by the FDIC, Kelln believes budgeting and planning for your financial future is one of the key components in achieving financial freedom. Within a budget is also a balance sheet to understand your financial position. He will briefly discuss financial positions and how to figure out what your financial position is, why it’s important to understand this figure, and what steps to take once you know where you stand.
He will also discuss the reasons why building a relationship with a financial institution is important, and what things to look for and avoid when choosing a financial institution. Most importantly, he will educate students about credit including how to build credit, some of the benefits of having good credit, what increases and decreases credit scores, and how often and where to check credit scores. Teaching college-aged students to be mindful of their finances and financial decisions is particularly important to Kelln.
Kelln earned his bachelor’s degree in finance from West Texas A&M University. He has 15 years of experience in banking, financial advising, business development, and exercise and sports nutrition. He has spent the past seven years developing a financial education resource for the future generations of the world.
