The University of Arkansas Extension Office in Salem hosted Ready, Set, Graduate! at the Salem High School Gym March 20. Ready, Set, Graduate! is a financial management program geared towards high school seniors. This program taught students how to be more responsible with money, which is a valuable thing to learn in this uncertain economy. During the Mall of Life session, students got to put what they learned throughout the one-day program to good use. Booths representing area businesses such as North Arkansas Electric Cooperative (NAEC), Bank of Salem and area car dealers and real estate agents were there to give students real life experience in the financial world.
