Five Vicksburg residents have completed the Mississippi State University Extension Service’s Money Mentor program. They will serve as volunteer financial counselors for individuals in the community.

The graduates, who completed three days of training, are retired civil engineer Clark McNair, New York Life Insurance agent Chad Sonnek, local business owner Karen Williams, retired engineer Stephen Ellis and dental assistant Paula Ellis.

Money Mentors help people learn about personal financial management through such practices as budgeting and working to repair credit scores.
