Since I am at one of our student branches, I get the opportunity to join some classes on their field trips. On April 22, 2009, I accompanied the Finance Academy class at Walker Career Center to Chicago to visit the Chicago Board of Trade and the Federal Reserve. The students toured the Board of Trade and saw the two different trading floors that are housed there. At the Federal Reserve, the students were able to tour the museum and get their picture taken next to a million dollars! Even though it was a cloudy, rainy, spring day, we all enjoyed learning about both locations and Chicago.
