Sharkey named NEFE HSFPP director
WASHINGTON (6/21/10)--Susan Sharkey has been named the new director of the National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE) High School Financial Planning Program (HSFPP), a program popular with credit unions. Sharkey will join NEFE in early August. Sharkey was the curriculum designer who worked with dozens of NEFE’s national network subject matter specialists in 2005 and 2006 to create the current version of the NEFE program. She spent nine years as an instructional design consultant and manager of consulting projects for the Worldwide Instructional Design System (WIDS) in Wisconsin. She began working at WIDS after 14 years as a high school educator. “Susan brings her strong background to NEFE and the HSFPP at a particularly critical time,” said John Parfrey, NEFE HSFPP director. “The need for quality financial education programs is great. And where some programs might have all the right ingredients in place, a true educational program is a well-prepared, exquisitely presented feast of learning, and that is what Susan brings to her role as director of the NEFE High School Planning Program.”
