On Tuesday, November 15, 2022, John M. Hayes, CEO of New Tripoli Bank, presented a lecture on financial literacy at William Allen High School in Allentown. This talk is part of the bank’s initiative to promote financial literacy to young people in the Lehigh Valley.

A total of 225 high school students attended Mr. Hayes’ lectures throughout the day. John discussed several financial literacy topics including the different types of bank accounts, interest rates and other banking terms, the various types of fraud and scams and how to recognize them, and tips for students to better prepare for job interviews. Students in attendance posed questions that Mr. Hayes was more than happy to answer, pulling from decades of banking experience to teach students about financial literacy.

“New Tripoli Bank has a long history of helping students understand banking, the job market, and why these issues are crucial for their future,” Hayes said.  “In addition, fraud is here to stay, and students need the tools to protect themselves and their families.”

New Tripoli Bank prepared several handouts for the students to take with them following the presentation. The bank also provided promotional items that the high school faculty raffled off to students who attended the lectures. New Tripoli Bank thanks William Allen High School’s teachers for approaching the bank with the opportunity to help empower their students to make good financial choices in their futures.
