Enlighten Your Students About

“We had an amazing time! Everything went very well and the students really learned some good material.”

— Ronald Suchy, Info Technology & Prog Teacher, Mayfield Excel TECC, Mayfield City schools

“The site visit was awesome. We were unable to see the lockbox, but the students enjoyed the presentations and learned a lot about technology and banking. Michael Slama and his colleagues were very hospitable. They sat with the students during lunch and had great conversations. Thank you for the opportunity to expose my students to this.”
