Former Boone Co. teacher to lead statewide commission

The Kentucky Financial Empowerment Commission, also known as KFEC, has named Jennifer Inman as its new executive director.

Prior to joining KFEC, Inman taught financial literacy at Boone County High School in Florence. She has also worked extensively with the John Jay Center for Learning, a non-profit technical education center located in Portland, Indiana. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Indiana Wesleyan University, a master’s degree in business education and marketing from Cumberlands University, and completed graduate studies in economics and finance at Northern Kentucky University.

The commission’s goal is to teach financial literacy to target groups in Kentucky, such as people with disabilities, low-income families, students, veterans, older Kentucky residents, as well as employees of the state.

Now, Inman will lead the commission to improve the financial literacy and financial education of Kentuckians, also continuing financial educator support programs.

“Jennifer brings a wealth of experience to this role,” according to Kentucky Treasurer Allison Ball. “She has taught financial education to high school students and has worked in the finance and nonprofit sectors. Every aspect of her background aligns perfectly with the needs and goals of the commission.
