First Bank & Trust (FB&T), announced the appointment of long-time employee and Vice President Judette Kurasz as the bank’s first Financial Literacy Officer. This new position solidifies the bank’s commitment to promoting and teaching financial literacy within the community.

 As Financial Literacy Officer, Ms. Kurasz will be dedicated to collaborating and coordinating with local organizations to facilitate bank-sponsored financial educational programs. She has already facilitated FB&T’s partnerships with a diverse group of local organizations, including Y.O.U., Well of Mercy, WE, Junior Achievement, Roycemore School, and Connections for the Homeless.

 While current workshop topics include how to open a bank account, how to save for college and plan for the future, basic budgeting, and credit repair, Ms. Kurasz also develops customized and individual programs for each organization with which she partners.

 The bank will also work with students from Northwestern University’s Segal Design Institute to bring financial literacy workshops to more individuals and organizations.
