Fifth-grade students at all 13 elementary schools in Hardin County Schools will begin Abound Credit Union’s financial education program this month.

“With financial literacy now required at the high school level, introducing these concepts at a younger age before students begin exploring career opportunities in middle school is vital and strengthens the vertical alignment of our curri­culum,” said Greg Sutton, chief academic officer for the school district, in a news release.
