2013 Financial Mentor Award winners

(Retirement) Permanent link   All Posts

Brenda EcheverriaCongratulations to the winners of the 2013 Financial Mentor Award! The award is given annually to Wisconsin public school employees who take the time to mentor their colleagues on the benefits of good financial planning and saving for retirement.

We received a number of comments from those who nominated a mentor that illustrate the effort people make to help others. They said their mentors:

  • “...continually look out for (employees’) well being whether it is financial or personal.”
  • Are always “...patient in helping others understand financial decisions and generous with their time to others.”

One of the nominators stated that Rusty Wulff, who is the focus of our cover story in the Fall 2013 your$ magazine issue, took the initiative with his colleagues to “start the (financial) conversation, putting in a lot of time and energy to help his fellow workers become better educated.”

What a difference these well-deserving winners make in other people’s lives! Each winner was recognized in your$ magazine and received a personal certificate of recognition.
