Fort Hays State University's Financial Planning Team returned from the national finals of the Ameriprise Financial Planning Invitational with a third-place showing. The competition was held in Minneapolis, Minn., April 18-21.
The FHSU team of Brittney Stecklein, Hays senior, Jason Bock, Ellsworth senior, and Julie Olson, Beloit senior, ranked behind Virginia Tech University and Kansas State University, respectively.
The competition consisted of three phases: a written financial plan, and oral presentation of the plan and a game show event similar to “Jeopardy.”
"I am very proud of Julie, Brittney and Jason for their display of integrity and professionalism while representing FHSU," said Dr. Tom Johansen, associate professor of finance. "This is the seventh year that FHSU has participated in the Ameriprise Financial Planning Invitational, placing first, first, third, fifth, fourth and fourth in the previous six years."
