Loved it. The students really responded to the message and the music. I can't say enough about the energy that was created. Best. Assembly. Ever. Trent Goldsmith, Teacher, Waverly High School
I love your music! You taught me so much, and I feel like managing my money seems so much easier now that I know more about how it works. Sixth grade student
The GOODING performance was amazing! Our students (and staff) had a great time enjoying GOODING's music and the kids were focused on the personal finance information. GOODING has a new group of fans in LIncoln! - Dani Fusco, Teacher, Pound Middle School
Your music is awesome, since your concert I have started a savings account. Seventh grade student
What a fantastic way to get kids interested in money management and how it pertains to them. As a teacher I can develop the best lesson plans to teach these concepts, but a rock band gets their attention! Cori Bowley, Teacher, Gretna Middle School
GOODING & NCEE share their mission with the press!
