The Indian Hill School District is excited to announce The Alpaugh Family Economics Center at University of Cincinnati (UC) will honor educator Betsy Henning as its 2022-2023 Personal Finance Educator of the Year. Henning was selected for her longstanding commitment to delivering real-world financial education to students at Indian Hill Elementary School (IHES).
“We are thrilled to learn Betsy Henning’s tireless dedication to promote financial literacy to our Braves has earned such prestigious and much-deserved recognition,” said Indian Hill Elementary School Principal Whitney Buell.
According to The Alpaugh Family Economics Center, Henning's Stock Market Game (SMG) program at Indian Hill Elementary School is a perennial powerhouse, with IHES teams often finishing in the top 10 statewide. An Indian Hill Elementary School team also won the Center's Portfolio Challenge last April, after team members explained their SMG investing strategies to a panel of judges. Henning also was instrumental in bringing Family Financial Literacy Night to Indian Hill Elementary in 2021 and 2022, in collaboration with the Center. The events brought personal finance games and activities to more than 150 IHES students and family members.
Center Academic Director Sue Heilmayer said, “Betsy's enthusiasm for financial and economic education is contagious. She's taken The Stock Market Game experience to a higher level at Indian Hill Elementary, and those lessons in market fundamentals will pay dividends for her students.”
Henning will be presented the award at the annual awards celebration taking place at TQL Stadium on April 6.
