The Kansas Council for Economic Education recently named Greteman Group brand manager Rachel Groene as the youngest member of its board.
The board is comprised of business, financial and educational leaders – eight women and 25 men. Although it is a separate legal entity, the KCEE is affiliated with all of Kansas’ six public universities and is hosted by the W. Frank Barton School of Business at Wichita State University.
The Kansas Council on Economic Education is a 501(c)(3) that strives to affect as many students as possible by equipping instructors with tools to successfully teach personal finance and economics. During each academic year, KCEE reaches more than 100,000 students through more than 1,000 teachers throughout the state.
About Kansas Council for Economic Education
The Kansas Council for Economic Education (KCEE) was founded in 1959 on the campus of Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas. From its inception, the Council has been positioned to serve the whole state of Kansas, although its location has changed several times until its move to Wichita State University where it has remained since 1993. The Council continuously increases the number and quality of its programs and services. Yet, through all this growth, KCEE’s central purpose – to support teachers in educating youth (grades K-12) to be literate in personal finance and economics – has not changed.
