A Butler County Community College financial literacy course stresses the importance of budgeting, saving, investing and comparing career choices to financial decisions.

Nearly 40 Butler Area Senior High School seniors this spring are taking BC3’s financial literacy course on BC3’s main campus as part of an inaugural dual-enrollment Early College Pioneers program that debuted in August.
