State Treasurer Lynn Fitch Hosts Girl Scouts Career Day
Jackson, MS. State Treasurer Lynn Fitch is proud to host today Jackson-area Cadette Girl Scouts for the Girl Scouts and Office of the State Treasurer Career Day. The scouts are spending their day touring the Treasurer’s Office and the State Capitol, completing activities geared towards improving their personal finance skills and learning about the daily responsibilities of the Treasurer’s Office.
“I am thrilled to spend the day with these young ladies,” noted Treasurer Fitch. “As a former cookie mom, I’ve seen firsthand the impact Girl Scouts makes in the community and in each one of the scouts’ lives. I am happy to help the scouts earn their financial literacy patch and prepare them to be better stewards and future leaders of Mississippi.”
“We are excited to be able to continue to offer this event in partnership with the Office of the State Treasurer,” stated Girl Scouts Program Director Matilda Stephens. “Thanks to Lynn Fitch and her staff for coordinating this wonderful learning opportunity for our girls.”
As part of the Career Day, the Cadettes will also meet prominent Mississippi women in financial fields from Mississippi and attend a lunch sponsored by BankPlus. Following their activities, the scouts will host a cookie reception for state agencies located in the Woolfolk building.
