BELL BUCKLE, Tenn. -- Students in the personal finance class at The Webb School complete a course created by Dave Ramsey, personal money management expert, best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio show host. To reinforce what they have learned in the classroom, the students travel to Financial Peace Plaza in Brentwood to hear firsthand how to avoid some of the financial pitfalls that plague young adults and how to plan for the future.

Scott Dorsett, who teaches the Webb class, recently took his students for the fifth year to hear Ramsey during his radio program discussing personal finance topics.

"We use the Dave Ramsey 'Foundations in Personal Finance' school curriculum as the anchor for the personal finance class at The Webb School," said Dorsett. "This was a great experience for our students to meet with the actual person who created our curriculum and ask him questions."

Students making the trip were Chilton Smith, Alex Riner, Jessica York, Hunter Foley, Ken Gammada, Zach Ring, Jason Bartlett, Ethan Anderson, Diana Skordallos, Hayden Cliche, Emilee Gibson and Mariah King.Scott Dorsett, right, personal finance teacher at The Webb School, takes a field trip to see Dave Ramsey during his radio show to culminate the class each year.
