It is with great pleasure that we announce
from Barringer High School has won Second Place
in the PACE-FM Program from Prudential.
Congratulations! We are so very proud of you!
This year the Prudential Actuarial Career Exploration and Financial Management program (PACE-FM) received more nominations than ever! Eighty-eight nominations were received from 14 high schools. This year’s nominated students were extremely competitive in their qualifications, and after a lengthy deliberation, 16 Newark 11th grade students were selected to participate in this year’s cohort. After three days of meeting virtually with numerous representatives of Prudential, including Senior Vice-Presidents, members of the Talent Development Team, Actuaries, and various Financial Management specialists, students participated in the program’s culminating event: a Case Competition.
During the Case Competition, students made presentations that showcased their speaking abilities, analytical skills, knowledge of Excel, and learnings about financial management, retirement, and the insurance industry. Students were divided into teams of 2 and made their presentations before judges selected by Prudential. All of the presentations were AMAZING! The judges all agreed that all teams were extremely competitive.
In the end, 2 teams were selected for the 1st Place and 2nd Place standing.
