CPR PARTNERSHIP REACHES NEARLY 18,000 STUDENTS

A new partnership between CPR and the Young Americans Center for Financial Education will allow students from nearly 300 schools each year to experience an enhanced connection to radio in Young AmeriTowne, a hands-on educational program promoting financial literacy among young people.

Hundreds of energetic fifth- and sixth-grade students gather each week in Young AmeriTowne, a realistic simulation of a 17-business town located in the Young Americans Center Bank in Cherry Creek. During the day-in-town program, students role-play life skills and apply business and economic concepts such as supply and demand, job and work habits, banking procedures, and civic engagement.

Vice President of Engineering Bob Hensler, Broadcast/IT Engineer Dean Phannenstiel, and Vice President of New Media and Technology Don Dixon refurbished and installed professional-level radio equipment in the Young AmeriTowne radio station. Improvements include a renovated operating console, microphone, iPod hook-up, recording capabilities, and an “on air” light.
