April is Nebraska Financial Wellness Month
The capitol was lit green on the first weekend in April as part of Nebraska Financial Wellness Month, an annual campaign designed to highlight the importance of financial wellness. Nebraska banks, credit unions, securities professionals, state agencies, consumer groups, and private sector organizations are conducting a variety of educational activities in schools, workplaces, and communities to educate Nebraskans about the importance of setting goals, making wise financial decisions, and protecting yourself and your financial future.

Tellers from the Arnold Elementary Eagle Branch of Cattle Bank & Trust join Governor Ricketts and Jennifer Davidson, NCEE President, for the NE Financial Awareness Month proclamation signing.
