IAB's Executive Director Mr. Philip Como, stated that, "financial literacy programs have been the core of so many of our Smithtown HS business courses over the past 30+ years and the increased interest from our students, along with the increased collaboration from our Smithtown IAB Banking Partners, has allowed us to create an event that focused on most all major areas personal financial management."
