Comptroller to Speak at Lansdowne HS Academy of Finance Awards

Students in program have acquired lifelong financial literacy skills

WHO:

Comptroller Peter Franchot

WHAT:

On Thursday, Comptroller Franchot will speak to one of the last classes to graduate from the Lansdowne High School Academy of Finance.
