TOPEKA, KS—July 17, 2023—Clayton Wealth Partners (CWP), a fee-only financial planning and investment management firm, recently helped empower future professional leaders in the Topeka region through an impactful financial literacy presentation.

On June 22, 2023, Wealth Advisors Eric Purcell, Zac Pohlenz, and Colton Walker, all CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) professionals, provided invaluable financial literacy education to interns from diverse companies at the Topeka Workforce Center.

Their discussion included topics vitally relevant for their life stage, such as budgeting, investing, understanding credit, planning for home purchases, and student loan management. This day also featured breakout sessions led by the Society for Human Resource Management Topeka Chapter and the Kansas Department of Health & Environment.

The interns are part of the Top City Interns program, which welcomes more than 200 interns each summer, introducing them to the city and local business leaders. Programs include social events, lunch-and-learns, and community connection via volunteering.

Rhett Flood, Executive Director for Forge Young Talent with the Greater Topeka Partnership, praised Clayton Wealth Partners’ involvement in the TopCity Interns program.

“The team at Clayton Wealth Partners provides resources for interns to make the right decisions and put them on the path to financial success from the very beginning of their careers,” he said.

Eric, Colton, Zac, and the rest of the team at Clayton Wealth Partners have done a tremendous job, over the years, preparing hundreds of interns for financial success.”
