College Savings Event Planned in Charleston


School may be out or winding down in West Virginia, but state Treasurer John Perdue wants parents to think about investing in their children’s future education.

Perdue’s office is holding a free ice cream social on Thursday afternoon at the state Capitol’s north plaza in Charleston in recognition of 529 College Savings Day being held nationwide. Balloons also will be handed out.
State employees will offer information about West Virginia’s Smart529 college savings investment plan, which was established 12 years ago.
