The Delaware Financial Literacy Institute, the state’s premier financial literacy program funded by tax-deductible contributions and grants, recently named new members to its 2013-14 board of directors. They include Cher Przelomski, CEO, Planning Factory International; Rick Solloway, investment representative, Raymond James & Associates 
and instructor, The Money School; and Dion Williams, CEO, Del-One Federal Credit Union.

DFLI Board President Emilio Cooper said, “We’re fortunate to have Cher and Rick bring the energy and commitment they demonstrated as members of our advisory council to the DFLI Board. And we’re pleased to welcome Dion and his significant experience leading credit unions to the board.” DFLI Board members serve two-year terms.

Founded as The Money School in 1999 by then-State Treasurer Jack Markell, DFLI incorporated in 2001 and opened its office in 2002.

Best known for its signature program, The Money School, DFLI offers education programs to individuals, students and small businesses, including From Purses to Portfolios; Friends Don’t Let Friends Drown in Debt; Got $avings?; First State Saves; Coalition of Organizations for Delaware Entrepreneurship; and youth programs including Chasing the Dream, a venture creation camp, and Bank At School.
