Academy of Finance (AOF) Job Shadow Day

On February 2nd, the students from the Chopticon High School Academy of Finance stepped out of their daily classroom routine to spend a day in the real world. As they have for a number of years, eighteen students spent the day visiting the Headquarters Office of Cedar Point Federal Credit Union in Lexington Park, Maryland. The students completed a tour of the credit union and then met with representatives from various departments. They learned about the many different aspects of keeping a financial institution running smoothly from what training a teller receives to the importance of continuously updating the marketing strategies and technology used by a financial institution up to date.

Cindy Baden, who is The Academy of Finance teacher, accompanied the students during the tour and learning experience. “This is a great way for our students to be introduced to what it takes to make a financial institution run smoothly behind the scenes. The interactive area of the presentations allowed them to increase their knowledge of the skills needed for specific jobs and educated them on what types of jobs are available to someone who is interested in accounting and finance. Many of them have accounts at a financial institution but had no idea the many job opportunities available.”

 

Cedar Point staff and management, along with the teachers and students, praised the event as a way to underscore the importance of a good education as a basis for future success. Cedar Point believes strongly that the Job Shadow experience shows students the many opportunities available within the local community, and allows them to see firsthand how the lessons taught in the classroom apply to the working world. “The knowledge of this class when it comes to economic and financial matters is always enlightening. The many questions asked throughout their visit showed a clear ability to apply the learned classroom information to the presentations throughout the day,” said Charles Roach, President/CEO of Cedar Point.
