KS Treasurer highlights state resources available to high schoolers

PITTSBURG, Kan. – Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Rogers visited Pittsburg High School to speak with some students.

The students he spoke to a part of  Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG), a non-profit youth development program. Rogers spoke to them about scholar shop, an online initiative to make finding scholarships easier, as well as the 529 Education Savings Plans.

“JAG is a program where kids learn what to do after after high school,” said Pittsburg High School JAG student Emily Wachter. “Rather that for them, is college or finding a job or going to a vocational school.”

Scholar Shop can be accessed through the Kansas State Treasurer’s website.
