Academics - posted on 10/2/2006
Lakeland College has several special presentations as part of Money Smart Week, which Gov. Jim Doyle has declared for the week of Oct. 2-6 in Wisconsin.
Rick Gaumer, assistant professor of accounting, will give a presentation entitled "VITA: Finding Tax Credits for Low-Income Taxpayers" on Monday from 3-4 p.m. at the Job Center of Sheboygan, 3620 Wilgus Rd., Sheboygan.
Lakeland has held a Voluntary Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program for two years at The Salvation Army office in downtown Sheboygan, and just last week was recognized by the Wisconsin office of the Internal Revenue Service for its work in free income tax preparation.
Lakeland will host "Get Your Students Pumped Up for Financial Fitness" on Tuesday at Lakeland's campus from 7:30 a.m.-noon.
This half-day workshop is for teachers at all grade levels and will focus on personal finance education. Teachers will learn about Wisconsin's new personal finance academic standards and why financial education is important.
Presenters are Scott Niederjohn, Lakeland's Charlotte and Walter Kohler Assistant Professor of Business Administration and director of Lakeland's Center for Economic Education, and James Flora, a teacher at New Holstein High School.
Later on Tuesday, from 6-7 p.m., Niederjohn will host The Millionaire Game at Lakeland, a fun and interactive way for people to get engaged in financial education.
