HSFPP Stories of Impact

by Dr. (MAJ) Kraig Kiehl, JROTC Senior Army Instructor, New Bloomfield, Pa.

"I am a JROTC instructor at Carson Long Military Academy. We actively use the NEFE resources and curriculum to provide robust financial education in our Leadership Education and Training Classes. I have taught the NEFE curriculum for the past three years and am thankful for the robust resources. Our cadets, hailing from all over the world, are exposed to the NEFE curriculum on a routine basis. I know that cadets are absorbing and understanding the NEFE material, typically by the end of the first semester, when I see them actively using SMART goal criteria to plan for financing their college educations. I am proud of our cadets and feel honored to watch them grow after learning the NEFE lessons and developing "living financial" portfolios that all cadets use to help them achieve their goals of attending college."
