MEDIA ADVISORY: BMO Harris Bank Honors Graduates of New Web-Based Financial Education Program

KANSAS CITY, KS--(Marketwired - May 17, 2013) - Credit card bills, debt, saving, and financing higher education are not often top of mind for most high school students, yet the financial decisions they make today will have long-term effects on their lives. Poor financial awareness jeopardizes teens' ability to succeed in today's complex and competitive environment. This announcement will focus on this issue.
