Have you had a chance to see the rock band Gooding?

Originally from Kansas and now based in Los Angeles, Gooding is traveling across Wyoming teaching students how to be more responsible with their money.

For the third year in a row, Governor Matt Mead has proclaimed April as Financial Literacy Month in Wyoming, encouraging schools to teach students about their finances. Gooding brings their money message to many of the Cowboy State’s schools and organizations this month including:

  • East High School in Cheyenne-April 5
  • Triumph High School in Cheyenne-April 8
  • Boys & Girls Club of Cheyenne-April 8
  • Natrona County High School in Casper-April 11
  • Campbell County High School in Gillette-April 12
  • Sheridan High School in Sheridan-April 14
  • Buffalo High School in Buffalo-April 15

At the Financial Literacy shows, Gooding plays a set of rock and roll and shows students a short film about their music career and then tells about musicians who were very successful and lost it all. They encourage students to set up a financial plan for their future. Watch Grateful Mike’s interview with Gooding.
