On March 8, 2017, the Marinette Menominee Area Chamber of Commerce hosted Life Skills Expo at UW- Marinette Field House. This one-day “game of life” for 8th grade students gives kids a sneak preview of life’s financial challenges. Students imagine life at the age of 29 by selecting a career and making decisions on how to spend their money.  Karen Cosby, Lindsey Fickler, Sarah Harding, Shaina Jorgensen and Tonnie Marcely from our loan department volunteered to help staff the FMBT mortgage table and assist students in navigating the Expo.
