ATLANTA, Dec. 21, 2018 – To further its commitment to education, The Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame is adding a new financial curriculum to the starting lineup for its comprehensive STEAM-based program (T.E.A.M.S.™). In partnership with Regions Bank, the new lessons were created by Turnkey Education Inc., to meet both state and local high school requirements. The Regions Next Step for Students is designed to teach high school students in grades 9-12 financial literacy and prepare them for the future with early financial planning tools.
“We are excited to partner with the College Football Hall of Fame to create a football-themed financial literacy program for high school students visiting the Hall and to add to the curriculum we distribute in the Regions footprint,” said Mark Senter, Regions Vice President of Corporate Marketing. “Providing financial education for today’s youth fits into our core values as a company because it’s the right thing to do. The program provides valuable STEAM education to youth during their visit to the Hall. This contribution to the Hall’s interactive learning experience extends our relationship in a meaningful way and provides Regions with another opportunity to give back to the community.”
T.E.A.M.S.™ – the Hall’s technology, engineering, arts, math and science curricula, blends the best of football history with interactive technology and has been recognized as a STEAM certified program by the Georgia Department of Education since 2014. The free, online program has been downloaded almost 25,000 times since implementation.
“We’re proud to be part of a new financial initiative with Regions Bank,” said Dennis Adamovich, CEO of the Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame. “The Hall has always been committed to spreading academic education to students and teachers throughout the country. We believe this is another opportunity to give back not only to the Atlanta community, but also show we are staying true to one of our company core values, to make things better through education. “
