Chuck Sawicki, CFP Emeritus

 Principals of middle school students have asked for our help:

“Many of our students are being raised by single parents & grandparents. Can you get some retired seniors to write less than one page about one thing they did right in their lives to help us motivate our students?”

65 million youth are being left behind since COVID.

Please email your short stories along with “Lessons Learned” that can motivate our youth in a nonprofit book for parents, teachers & “Our Future”.
