Arthur Lard of Portsmouth High School Honored for Efforts
PORTSMOUTH – Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel’s office visited Portsmouth High School in Portsmouth on Wednesday to recognize Arthur Lard for his efforts to promote financial literacy in the classroom. The Ohio Treasurer’s office has been partnering with schools across Ohio to provide free resources to help them comply with new financial education requirements.
As part of this effort, a regional representative from the Ohio Treasurer’s office presented a proclamation to Lard who has been working to educate his students on the importance of smart money choices.
“Whether students go to college, join the military or enter the workforce, understanding money management skills will help them build a solid foundation for the rest of their lives,” said Treasurer Mandel.
Mr. Lard is a business teacher at PHS and has been using the software provided by the Treasurer's office for the last three years. Mr. Lard also runs the school Print Shop and Spirit Store.
