MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Together Assisting People (TAP) Inc. will host a personal finance workshop for Mobile's premier high school athletes.
The C.A.S.H, Changing Athletes' Spending Habits, workshop will take place Saturday, July 27, at USA Mitchell Center from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The workshop targets young athletes who aspire to perform on a professional level. The workshop will engage the youth on several methods of financial literacy.
Percival Ethridge, owner of several Jackson-Hewitt locations, will serve as guest speaker at the event.
Chris Rogers, TAP Inc. founder and member of the 2009 University of Alabama BCS National Championship team said, his experience at the university gave him the idea to hold the workshop.
"This workshop will truly be an eye opening experience for young athletes, with all of the articles and TV specials on why athletes go broke, I felt that everyone had an opinion or assumption but no answer. And I believe that the key to eliminating this unfortunate trend begins with financial literacy and that starts in high school," Rogers said.
Registration for the workshop remains open until Thursday, July 25, at 7 p.m.
Those interested in attending may register at www.tapinc.us
