LEIHS Students Learn About the Federal Reserve

A group of Lake Erie International High School students, along with two staff members, toured the Federal Reserve Bank Money Museum and Learning Center in Cleveland on Wednesday, February 15, 2017. The students learned about the Federal Reserve's role in our country's economic system and they also learned how to spot a counterfeit bill. One of the biggest highlights of the trip was the tour of the old vault which is comprised of walls that are 6-feet thick and a door that weighs 91-tons! Students ended the field trip having lunch with Jeff Creve, Audit Analytics Director at the Federal Reserve Bank in Cleveland, who explained his roles and responsibilities within the organization and answered students' questions. Once the group returned to school, they were excited to show off their personal stash of shredded money and personalized dollar bills!  Many of the students stated this was an fun trip and that they learned a lot.
