Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the sharp decline in the mineral industry, economic hardship has hit many families in the Sheridan area. Many residents have been forced to tighten their belts as personal finances suffer.
The University of Wyoming Extension is offering a free, five-session online class to learn about personal finances. Sessions will be held on Tuesdays Feb. 9, through March 9, taking place over the noon hour.
“Participants can attend any of the classes, but they’ll get the most from attending all of them,” Extension Personal Finance Management Specialist Cole Ehmke said.
The classes will cover financial basics, managing money, investing, insuring success: retirement and insurance, and life events.
