EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)-- The Governor's Council on Financial Literacy visited the Chippewa Valley Friday for a meeting and a tour of a student-run credit union office.

The council held its meeting at the Royal Credit Union Corporate Center in Eau Claire to discuss financial literacy initiatives and opportunities. The council then toured the recently remodeled student-run North High School Royal Credit Union office.

Secretary of Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions, Lon Roberts, says Eau Claire is doing a great job promoting and implementing financial literacy.

"We have like 100 of these programs throughout the state. We would like to see them multiply. These kinds of real success stories will lead others I think to do it, so we are really pleased to be here and to support this effort," said Roberts.

The Governor's Council on Financial Literacy was created to help more Wisconsinites become financially savvy.
