Many thanks for those who attended and supported our 2020 Visionary Awards Benefit online featuring our wonderful emcee Steve Liesman, CNBC Senior Economics Reporter; and honoring Dr. Ben S. Bernanke, Former Chair of the Federal Reserve System; Kathleen A. Murphy, President, Personal Investing Fidelity Investments; and James R. Schenck, President & CEO, PenFed Credit Union.
We also celebrated high school teachers Joel Kirkhart, Queens High School for Language Studies; Rachel Kessous, Urban Assembly School for Law and Justice; and Alhassan Susso, International Community High School who received Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Teaching Awards.
Kathleen A. Murphy, an amazing woman in finance created a special video on why it is important for young people to understand money and economics. Watch Kathleen’s video below:
The online benefit raised $400,000. The money raised will help students gain the knowledge and skills to make better decisions for themselves, their families, and their communities, providing them with a path to economic stability and upward mobility.
Thank you to all our sponsors for their support and for everyone who attended. We are grateful.
