Ind. Secretary of State visits Adams H.S.

If you were offered either a million dollars today or a penny that would be doubled every day for 30 days, which would you take?

Students at Adams High School were asked this very question Wednesday morning.

It was just one of the financial lessons given to them by Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson.

Lawson travels around Indiana teaching high school students how to stay financially fit.

Everything from compound interest to getting out of credit card debt was covered.

"In your youth, you can do a lot of things to help yourself in the future," she explained." So if you know how to budget now, and you know how good credit works for you and bad credit works against you today, then you'll have money hopefully to invest and make your own money work later for you for retirement."

Lawson's visited schools in St. Joseph and Elkhart County on this trip.

The answer to our earlier question?

You'd earn more money doubling a penny every day for 30 days, then taking a million dollar lump sum.
