Wagner High School – Thunderbird’s Home

Cash AND Credit

Update – a link to the video is here. It is part of a series from a local news anchor that is covering what is “cool” about local schools.

This local High School has a bank in it. Really! A real bank. And it is staffed by students. Students that get paid, AND earn school credits.

I wish more schools would incorporate real-life activities into their curriculums (like teaching CPR to every student!).

Wagner High School is named after Lt. Col. Karen Wagner. A 1979 Judson graduate, Col. Wagner was a Medical Service Corps. Officer (MSC) serving as a Personnel Officer in the Office of the Army Surgeon General at the Pentagon. While serving her country, she perished in the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.
