Veterans Memorial Hospital sponsored Reality 101, which was held at the Waukon High School for all area schools April 1. Nearly 200 Kee, Postville, MFL/MarMac and Waukon High School graduating seniors were able to attend. More than 80 individuals and businesses volunteered their time to create a real-life financial scenario for all of these students preparing for graduation. The students were required to visit each of the 30 Reality 101 stations to open a bank account, pay their taxes, purchase an automobile and insurance, pay for daycare, groceries, a home, household supplies, vet expenses, health and life insurance, and still have a balance of $0 to $200 in their checking account.

Nearly 200 graduating seniors from Postville, Kee, MFL/MarMac and Waukon high schools attended “Reality 101” at the Waukon High School Wednesday, April 1. Over 80 individuals and businesses volunteered their time to create a real-life financial scenario for all of these students preparing for graduation.
Each student chose a career and researched monthly income based on average northeast Iowa wages in the classroom setting prior to the activity. The day of Reality 101, the students were provided with a life scenario which may include a spouse, children and possibly even child support situations including the information they provided on their chosen career and college plans.
