A wise saying is, “The key to success is action, and the essential in action is perseverance.”
At Craig County High School (CCHS), teacher Wanda Reynolds lives by this quote for her students. “I want the best for them and try to make sure they have what they need to succeed in everyday life as well as their future workplace,” Reynolds said.
This year, which marked a sixth consecutive time, Craig County High School earned a spot in the W!SE (Working in Support of Education) top 100 schools in Virginia.
W!SE is a leading educational nonprofit based in New York City. Its mission is “to improve the lives of young people and at-risk adults through programs that develop financial literacy and readiness for college and the workforce.”
This award-winning program provides CCHS teachers with a curriculum and instructional resources to teach personal finance and measure students financial literacy through a W!SE Certification Test. Students who pass the test are designated Certified Financially Literate. This also enhances their college or workplace applications.
