There’s a lot to take in when it comes to student loans. Whether you’re getting ready to start your college career, currently enrolled, or a graduate paying on your student loans now, our newest seminar will provide you with the information you need to make informed financial decisions. A college degree can dramatically influence your earning potential – but if you’ll be financing it with a student loan, don’t go in blind. Make sure you understand the impact it can have on your financial future. Topics explained:
- The difference between good and bad debt
- Learn about the different public and private programs
- The impact student loans can have on your financial future
- Loan repayment options and scenarios
- Practical steps to paying off student debt

Accounting Career Awareness Program (ACAP)
Masco HQ’s Treasury Manager, Chris Leslie, is involved with the Accounting Career Awareness Program (ACAP), an initiative spearheaded by the National Association of Black Accountants. This one-week residency program with a special focus on minority students connects high schoolers (grades 9-12) who are interested in pursuing academic studies in Accounting, Finance or a business related field. Among other things, the program helps the students network; gives them exposure to different industries, corporate environments, and college life; develops their leadership, presentation, and interviewing skills; and connects them with mentoring, scholarship, and internship opportunities. The program is FREE to students, and 30 applicants are accepted each year.
The 2019 program will run July 14-19 at Wayne State University, and I wanted to make sure any potentially interested students have access to this opportunity. Please feel free to distribute the information to relevant principals, teachers or counselors in your district as you see fit, and to reach out to myself or Chris Leslie (cc’d above) with any further questions.
