    Six informational booths provided students the opportunity to ask questions and gain valuable information. Participating students earned an opportunity to go in the “cash cube” and win valuable prizes.

  • A “Real Life MIllionaire” panel discussion included: Brian Sheehan, former CEO of Saatchi Australia & LA; Marc Jones, retired professional football player and President & CEO of Dreissig Apparel; and Vicki Brackens, financial education entrepreneur and current co-host of Financial Fitness on WCNY TV.

Following the panel discussion an ice cream social was held so students could engage with panelists.

The Financial Fitness Fair was presented in cooperation with OCC’s Office of Student Engagement.
