Cameron University Business Research Center to host “Money Matters: College and Beyond”

Cameron University’s Bill W. Burgess, Jr. Business Research Center (BBRC) will host “Money Matters: College and Beyond,” a workshop led by Bridgette Nichols, Oklahoma Money Matters Outreach Specialist. The forum will take place on Wednesday, March 13, at 1 p.m. in the CETES Conference Center and is open to the public at no charge.

“Consumers make daily decisions about earning, saving and spending, so it’s important to understand how to successfully manage personal finances,” says Dr. Syed Ahmed, Director of Cameron’s Bill W. Burgess Jr. Business Research Center. “We invite residents throughout Southwest Oklahoma to take advantage of this opportunity for information on how to manage your money.”

Nichols has served as an Outreach Specialist for Oklahoma Money Matters since 2016, having previously worked in common education, higher education and non-profits. Oklahoma Money Matters is a personal finance education program that helps K-12 schools, higher education, businesses and community partners develop or expand educational services that empower Oklahomans to make positive financial choices. An initiative of the Oklahoma College Assistance Program and the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education since 2004, OKMM offers information, resources, and a variety of services to educate students, adults and families about managing personal finances, saving, consumer credit, financial aid and student loan management.
