A TEDx Talk is a showcase for speakers presenting great, well-formed ideas in under 18 minutes.
Putnam Rotarian and banker Emily Petrik (standing with Putnam Rotary President John Miller) Jan. 29 presented her TED talk on a program she designed called "A Penny Saved". It's a financial literacy program that teaches people with intellectural and developmental disabilities how to manage their finances --- including how to write a check, go to the bank, use the ATM machine, etc.She said these are all skills that are needed to become independent adults and the program has shown great success so far.
