EverFi Press Release

Oneta Edmonds, Social Science teacher

On Thursday, May 9th, 110 Armijo High School students were recognized at a Financial Literacy Certification ceremony. In the last seven years, more than 1,400 students have completed the program and been certified by passing all of the tests for each of nine modules of instruction. For these students, the words FICO scores, compound interest, renting, student loans, car loans, debit and credit cards, checking, and savings accounts are no longer hollow, but rather concepts they understand and will be able to use in building healthy relationships with money.  

Thanks to First Northern Bank, an independent community bank headquartered in Solano County since 1910, in conjunction with FSUSD, students have the opportunity to develop financial literacy skills.  EVERFI is the leading education technology company to teach, assess, and certify students in critical skills.

The 110 students received their certificates from EVERFI, Inc., congratulations letters from First Northern Bank, Assemblyman Jim Frazier and State Senator Bill Dodd.

Dignitaries from local sponsor First Northern Bank, EVERFI, Inc. Fairfield Mayor Harry Price, Principal Sheila Smith, FSUSD Board President David Isom, Director of Secondary Education, Kristen Witt, and Economics teachers Oneta Edmonds and Andrew Tkach, presented the certificates and congratulated the now financially literate Armijo students.

This year,  all students in Oneta Edmonds, Joe Klapper, Jenny Uhalde and Andrew Tkach’s Economics classes have developed important financial skills that will be valuable to them in their adult lives after high school.  All students in theEconomics classes participate in the program, but only those students who pass all nine module tests certify and receive commendation for their skills.
