On Wednesday, April 26 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Housatonic Community College (HCC) in partnership with Patriot Bank, hosted a Money Management Panel discussion at HCC’s Beacon Hall Events Center. The room was packed with high school and college students, faculty, staff, and parents all eager to hear how to master money.
Whether they were looking to improve their relationship with money, increase their knowledge of how to manage it, establish and maintain credit, or become a millionaire, this event outlined the steps to accomplish their goals.
Leading the program were Patriot Bank President Rick Muskus, Jr. and Housatonic Community College’s Dean of Academic Affairs Dr. Michael Brown, along with special guest Beverly Hoppie, Director of Education and Community Engagement at Bridgeport Neighborhood Trust/Home Ownership Academy. Charles Mayrick, Assistant Professor of Business and Economics; Bernard Pasierb, Instructor of Business Administration and Director of the HCC Small Business/Entrepreneurship Center; and moderator Pamela Pirog, Professor of Entrepreneurship and Accounting rounded out the panel.
